Poetry Crashes

[From Wednesday's Gazette, page A7

The life of a poet comes with its fair share of danger, it seems. While poet Asa Boxer was in Toronto on a Signal reading tour, his 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass was being pursued by police across the Champlain Bridge. It did not end well, and our hearts go out to Asa, who as of today will be using public transportation.

If you would like to pass on your condolences, Asa can be found at Ye Olde Orchard Pub (1189 Rue de la Montagne, in Montreal) this Friday, November 2, at 7pm for the Montreal Signal launch party, along with George Ellenbogen, Anita Lahey, Christopher Patton, and Peter Richardson.

Oh, and if anyone has a car, Asa will be needing a ride to the event.
