My Montreal Meanderings In the last few months I've been exposed to the poetry of men who go by their first two initials followed by their last names: A.M. Klein and W.H. Auden, both of whom I've come to admire in no small amount. This poem is in some ways dedicated to them.

The Day the World Got Bigger This is a submission for my Creative Nonfiction class. Yes, that's a bit of an oxymoron. This took place in my kindergarten years, when I was just learning about the world and depending on grownups.

2Old Click Richards Another one from the old prose class! Each person in the class had to come up with a characteristic of one collectively-created guy, and then write a short piece about him. This one's mine.

2Nightghast A recent story from my prose class here in Concordia U, set in my native Malaysia. I suppose I was attempting to depict a rather old-fashioned, traditional mindset... and got a little carried away. Have fun!

2Mr NoOne I'd been playing with the idea for this poem for about a year before I finally settled on a version that I felt reasonably did the job. I'd tell you all about what it means... but that would spoil the fun, don't you think?

2World Meets World The assignment here was to go somewhere public and listen to snippets of other people's conversations. Some people say the strangest things. A hundred hug-bucks to whomever can tell me what about this I didn't make up.

4The Greyer Lives (Updated) Changed my mind. It's not so grim after all. Written at 4am on a late Toronto February, when there's a lot of grey dreariness going on. Currently Fictionpress is being VERY irritating and not letting me divide it into stanzas.

3The Name Game Here's one from my Creative Writing class here at Ryerson University. The assignment was to write a scene in which two characters want something from each other, and go through the methods of obtaining it. Here's the result of two nights and a subway ride

9Rebirth Do you know how difficult it was to classify this piece? First draft, this one, but I felt I should upload it while it's still warm. A girl meets a writer at a bar and learns a little bit about the human fascination with destruction and the dark unknown.

8We Are The Stars Now I remember hearing someone saying, "I wish they wouldn't kiss in public... at least, not while I don't have a boyfriend." Got me thinking. For Izzy J, who, coincidentally, is a fantastic girl.
