World Poetry Day, March 21

To celebrate World Poetry Day, here are some excerpts from books we like!

 Nombreux seront nos ennemis, Geneviève Desrosiers

mon conquistador, mon frigidaire, mon
auréolé, ma marque grise, mon charbon, ma
craie blanche, mon irrémédiable, ma colle
de charpentier, ma roche "

"The Difference

The difference
between me and Leonard Cohen
is that he is a great writer
while I,
am  great

"The city had grown simple. They were now measuring
themselves in the footsteps of the pedestrian,
and not eating enough fruit."

be the kind of thing that made that come in. A letter was nicely sent."

When I take my leave of you."

A Little Death Around The Heart, Marie Darsigny


When people say Myspace is dead, I always reply,
"so is my ex-girlfriend."

invisible sous
le pantalon et
sous la robe"
