The Trust Spiral

Restoring faith in the media

Dear Prudence

A life of exuberance and eccentricity

Who’s Afraid of Alice Munro?

A long-awaited biography gives the facts, but not the mystery, behind this writer’s genius

 

Black Rock Beach

 

A thousand angry horses

foaming at the mouth.

 

Behind them is a haven:

the stretching disc

 

where grey Atlantic sea

meets grey Atlantic sky.

 

Elysium.

 

The beasts reject this refuge

choosing, instead, to face

 

the obstinate rocks.

One by one, spines twist

 

and recoil — water, as always,

turning back on itself.

David Huebert works, lives and writes in Halifax. His poetry and fiction have appeared in journals such as Event, Matrix, Existere, Vallum and The Antigonish Review.
