Nightwood in Transit

Joe Denham

Poets Joe Denham and Laisha Rosnau will both be featured in the Association of Book Publishers of BC’s Poetry in Transit project. In partnership with TransLink and BC Transit, the ABPBC produces sixteen poetry cards annually featuring the work of BC-authored and Canadian-published poets. The cards are displayed on buses and SkyTrains throughout the transit systems in BC. The Denham excerpt is from the “South of Black Point, Southeast Wind Screaming” section of his book-length poem Windstorm, published by Nightwood in 2009. And we hope the poetry card installers will take sufficient note to place the excerpt of Rosnau’s poem on the infamous Hastings route. “He Was the Number 14” appeared in her most recent collection Lousy Explorers, also published in 2009.
