‘Can you tell me about KFB?’

db -2db - kolewe

I remember stopping in one Friday this past March feeling rundown and fed up with this city and Kirby was all smiles, and then Ralph Kolewe, a great poet, dropped in, and then Kate Sutherland, another great poet, dropped in, and we all sat in the sun together, looking at poetry, talking. And I instantly remembered why I was in Toronto.
