…In honor of International Poets Day, and the first day of Spring (and Gord Downie, one of my real heroes) I offer you one of my favorite Poets of all time… 


“Spring starts when a heartbeat’s pounding

When the birds can be heard above the reckoning carts doing some final accounting

Lava flowing in Superfarmer’s direction

He’s been getting reprieve from the heat in the frozen food section
Don’t tell me what the poets are doing

Don’t tell me that they’re talking tough

Don’t tell me that they’re anti-social

Somehow not anti-social enough (alright)
Don’t tell me what the poets are doing 

On the street and the epitome of vague 

Don’t tell me how the universe is altered

When you find out how he gets paid”
