Big Lift Ferry Poem F403

Composing under
Pressure to reach a target
Number of poems –
For this collection felt sort
Of fake and unnatural

Notes to this poem…

Not all that true, upon reflection. All the other rides I’m scrambling my mind to write as many short poems as I can. There was just no formal target then.

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.
