Big Lift Ferry Poem F263

The view of my place –
Isn’t nearly as nice as
The view from my place

Notes to this poem…


My place overlooks the harbour and some of downtown Halifax and most of downtown Dartmouth, and then some. My place is in a grey apartment building amidst other buildings somewhere halfway up a hill, with no distinct window coverage from building policies.

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.
