a (short) poetry walk

April 28, 2014

A Lake A LaneIn our ongoing interest in all-things-poetry-walk, here’s another addition to the collection: bpNichol Lane. Named for prolific, award-winning and, alas, short-lived writer, Barrie P. Nichol (bpNichol), this poetry walk can be found in an otherwise unremarkable lane behind the building of printer/publisher Coach House Books in Toronto. Nichol was best known for his concrete poetry (no pun intended), but wrote in — and between — many genres. bpNichol Lane contains a single example of his poetry impressed in the pavement.
