Poems in French in Canadian Literature

Issue # 207 of Canadian Literature, A Quarterly of Criticism and Review, published by The University of British Columbia is now available in print and online. It's a special issue on Mordecai Richler.

Two of my French poems are included in this issue and can be accessed ->here (in the Poetry section).

The first poem is titled "Galanterie" (Gallantry) -  an odd ode to feelings that bind us and eventually set us free.

The second one is titled  "Marécages à Bruges" (Bayous in Bruges)
Bayous in Bruges is a medalion of several hours spent in the Belgian city on a day of sunshine and drizzle mixed with the distant menace of storms and clouds rolling in from the sea.
