Billeh Nickerson is a poet for our times?a witty, urbane chronicler of life through lavender-coloured glasses. His poems, full of astonishing pleasures, speak to the wonders of the world: about "the push of knowing you're different" and "the pull of wanting to belong." Whether it is professing his unrequited love for Wayne Gretzky, or offering his insight into the tragicomic dynamics of Three's Company, Billeh Nickerson proves that a good poem is not hard to find.
