Road Trip River Voices

Road Trip River Voices: Canada Liminal

This is the story of homelessness, crossing continents and wandering in search of a place to stay where friends will take you in and what one sees on the way. Beginning in Ottawa, travelling Quebec and New Brunswick, arriving in England to a Devon landscape, moving through fall, winter and spring.

Influenced by Kerouac, himself a Quebecois, this is a story in verse, a travelogue crossing continents, boarding greyhound buses, a journal of travels over a period of two years, writing poetry on the run, place by place. This a story of how one leaves and where one goes.
