Soon going to a
Happier place where
Less poetry is written

Notes to this poem…
I sometimes think I write poetry when I’m not happy, as a distraction and a way to just step back and look at the big picture, or the simpler things in life, to appreciate everything a bit more again. I’ve just gotten lots of good things coming into my life all of a sudden that I will have to devote time to thinking about. So even if I wanted to continue my current pace of torrid poetry writing, I can’t if I want to do all these other things well… and sooner in some cases cause a lot of it involves learning.
The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
