The Path of Poetic Resistance

To disarm Canada and its canon

Are Interests Really Value-Free?

A salvo from the “realist” school of Canadian foreign relations

Going It Alone

The marvellous, single-minded, doggedly strange passion of citizen scientists

 

When you come to greet me, shyly,

wearing nothing but your love for me

I will come to meet you halfway

like a falcon returning to your wrist.

 

And when you raise your arm,

trembling ever so slightly,

I will alight and let you pull

the velvet shroud over my eyes.

 

Daniel Goodwin is a poet and the author of several novels, including The Art of Being Lewis and, most recently, The Great Goldbergs.
