Poem: Would You Believe Me

This poem is currently unpublished. I thought it was appropriate following the 16×9 show “Supremacy: Brotherhood of Hate”.

ps. I am looking for a publishing house for my biography and poetry that follows suit with the genre I write.

God is Dead: A poem about sex trade workers in the lower east-side: East Vancouver

 

 

 

In the fall of 2012, I read this poem I wrote at UNBC event for Men Resisting Violence Against Women and at the Weaving Words Aboriginal Storytelling Festival.Image

 

This piece was published by the Simon Fraser University literary journal, The West Coast Line no. 72, 2012.

At the Men Resisting Violence even I read along with two poets Ken Belford and Robb Budde, and Novelist Josh Massey.

At this storytelling festival I read along with Garry Gottfriedson and Richard Van Camp, this was an honour for me. To have these individuals allow me the space to tell a few short stories alongside them establishes their praxis on creating healing spaces for all people. Why is a a former right-wing-extremist allowed space to read at an aboriginal storytelling festival, it is because it is about healing and good medicine.
