Dates, Facts, Arguments and Exile

For those of you who don’t read the last pages or lines first like I do, I’ll let you know right now that there’s a sandwich recipe at the end of this post.


On Feb. 27, you can read my essay “One pot living” in the Facts and Arguments Section of the Globe and Mail.

On March 25, you can listen to me read at Exile’s launch at the Dora Keogh (141 Danforth Ave., Toronto). 7:15 pm. Other lovely readers include Meaghan Strimas, Zoe Garnett, Rosemary Sullivan, Ailsa Kay, Christopher Adamson and Rebecca Rosenblum.

On March 25, you can read my suite of seven poems in the latest issue of Exile Quarterly.

On May 9, you can listen to me read at the I.V. Lounge. More details to come.

On Feb. 19, today, I’ll give you a recipe for a sandwich, my favorite: Boil a sweet potato. Not too soft. Slice it into thin rounds. Bake the rounds in the oven. Cool. Get two pieces of hunters’ style rye bread. Add a layer of creamy cucumber salad dressing, alfalfa sprouts and two thick slices of ripe tomato. Now layer the rounds of roasted sweet potato. Press your large and lovely sandwich together. Cut. Enjoy. Wipe your mouth. Enjoy some more.
