Le cahier de Montréal - The Little Red Notebook of Even Smaller Poems

I’ve been to McGill
The arts building was under
I’ve been to the university bookstore
It bore me
All I could find was a companion
To your latest book
And a collection of poems
By Irving Layton
For the sum of twenty-six dollars.

I will follow your advice
But later.

For now let’s stick to
The real things
Like moka and pad thai
And comment on the waste of my time
That’s all my meager budget
And fifteen more days can afford.
