Michael Turner

Can we still call Michael Turner the west coast's bad boy poet?According to this amazing photo by Vancouver photographer Alex Waterhouse-Hayward, we damn well should be able to. Loved Turner's Kingsway (find an excerpt here), and Hard Core Logo. Whatever happened to The Pornographer's Poem, which Soft Skull picked up for US publication?? Anyone check that out? I'm thinking I will post on Canadian poets again for a while. Starting on the west coast, though perhaps not as chronological as all that. Can you tell I'm homesick?
