Two poems

Prairie Fire solicited poems to go with my appearance at their Speaking Volumes gala...that in turn was prompted by my Most Promising win at the 2010 Manitoba Book Awards.

They published How to Connect with Your Father and How to Connect with Your Step-Father.

This is only my second poetry appearance in PF. And the first appearance of the Edison poems anywhere.

Beyond that, I GREATLY enjoyed reading the suite that these two poems came from at Speaking Volumes, even if reading them made me a little verklempt.
