East Vancouver poet Joe Boyce Burgess launches his new book of poetry tonight at the Prophouse Cafe at 1636 Venables. The self-published A Cure for Mirrors features haikus and “longer epiphanies” such as “all the little dresses are black”, which includes this stanza:
See a regretful
hairy man who only feels
in a little black dress
The book launch begins at 8 p.m., with local musicians Wyckham Porteous and Rodney DeCroo performing sets and, we presume, Burgess reading poems.
