Verbatim

"For about four years in my mid-thirties my main form of exercise was to attend kickboxing classes at a dojo down the street from my home in the fantastic Ottawa neighbourhood of Hintonburg. It was confusing and exhilarating to learn how to move my arms and legs in combinations of offence and defence—as exciting as deciphering the nouns, verbs and grammatical structure of a new language."

Anita Lahey on her new book Spinning Side Kick.

Poetry really is a formidable, sometimes downright dangerous art form.
