The March 31 reading I gave, with Vernon BC poet and musician John Lent, kicked off National Poetry Month at Oxygen Art Centre in Nelson BC. The recording of the event is now here on YouTube, thanks to Oxygen.

During the reading, John performs two songs as well as reads new work. I read mostly from my latest collection, Watching a Man Break a Dog’s Back: Poems For a Dark Time.
