A collection of linked poems inspired by Kingsway, Vancouver's oldest thoroughfare, which is neither a "street" nor an "avenue" but a "way" of thinking?about cities, people, and different points of view. It demarcates the community of the living: a thoroughfare that is repeated in cities across the country, a world of strip malls, Chinese restaurants, and car repair shops. Kingsway is a place to get lost, to lose oneself?both a starting point and a destination.
