TEXT Ì Tom Thomson In Purgatory × Troy Jollimore
As one who might be encountered in sharply rendered fictionOf course we know and delight in the knowledge that Tom Thomson is a verbal phantom the result of the poet's word spinning but at the same time we lean forward to belie Last night I sat uietly and listened to Troy Jolli read from Tom Thomson in Purgatory A private reading for a select audience in a private home In a room with blue walls full of art and intelligence Poetry for god's sake Me I hate poetry I tried to distract myself by searching for flaws in the paint any imperfection in the perfect edge of blue wall against ceiling white Or was it yellow? I can't remember I think it was the instruction that moss grows most full and bright on the side of the tree that faces the nearest major urban area You shit Troy Jolli You made me listen To poetry Good God Even worse I bought the book How will I ever recover?
BOOK Tom Thomson In Purgatory
