Toronto, Ontario    1998 -    
"He laughed and said with half a smile,
'I write so you'll fall in love for a while.'"

Of course
I'll say
I'm happy
For you.

To whom I hate:
If I truly knew you
I wouldn't hate you
Such is life.

Don't be defined
By what you don't want to be
For you were designed
To be more than you see.

Making a potentially adult idea into an almost playful, childish limerick is a way of normalizing an issue. It doesn't change the power of the statement, it changes its audience. There is not one best way to talk about something - there are simply ways we can try.

Like a candle in a hurricane
We flickered out in the wind
And anyone who saw us burning
Thought it must have just been
A little trick of the light.

Everyone's talking their tongues away
Filled with life on the tired subway
Loosened drink and slurred to think
But only on St. Patrick's Day.

For nothing
Worth doing
Is easy.

The answer
We've both been searching for
Is the question
We both avoid.
