I) vertigOMNI

  scotiabank, td,
and cn towers;    our sky-
line is an icon.


II) Den Lille Havfrue, Traversing Gristmill Lane

dignity is     the
only option,   when   every
step is      agony.


III) “Attention all subway customers on the Yonge-University-Spadina Line:”

passengers recoil
like junkies wakened by gulls
gagging on sunlight.
