Here in the Okanagan, we irrigate an arid landscape to grow apples (which don’t pay anymore) and grapes. I’m thinking I should sign up for the World Water Day Poetry Slam organized by Nancy Holmes’ students at UBC Okanagan, March 20, 11.30-1.30 pm in the Sun Room (really just the cafeteria half-closed off). But then I’d have to write a poem. A slammin’ poem. A slammin’ slam poem. I don’t know.
