"By Judge Alone"
CV2, Spring 2018
An honourable mention in Contemporary Verse 2’s annual 2 Day Poem contest in 2018. Participants are emailed a list of 8 words at midnight on Friday night, words which they must have used in a poem and submitted to CV2 by midnight on Sunday night.
“By Judge Alone” uses anaphora – repeated line openings – to evoke a sense of inevitability, of fatalism, appropriate to the implied subject matter. From the texts readers learn, the narrator is coping with someone's dysfunction. The repeated phrase begins as “Don’t judge…” but it varies as the poem progresses.
“Why So Many Dogs”
All Lit Up, April 2014
This “Thirty Day, Coast-to-Coast Poetry Program” blog publishes a poem a day during Canada’s National Poetry Month (April, the worst month in the year for anyone working at a university). They featured a piece from The Hundefraulein [Dog-Nanny] Papers, which answered the question often asked in the years I looked after Elisabeth Mann Borgese’s many English Setters: “Why does she keep so many dogs?”
