In 2008, we met for a three-day writing party in Marshland, Ontario. Here we composed our first site-specific poem and substantially revised earlier work. At this meeting we also found our name, in one of our earliest images:
Yoko's house is dark, her dogs
tied in front, too cold to bark. Since then we have continued to work from distant places, meeting annually to compose and revise. With the publication of our first full-length collection, Whisk (Pedlar Press, 2013), we have begun to explore polyphonic composition and performance.
In keeping with tradition, which we happily and radically break in order to invent anew, our practice is rigorous, exacting, challenging, and exuberant: arf for arf's sake!
