    One thought on “Steveston

    1. Not an easy read, especially if you re not a fan of poetry But once you start to delve into the themes and the language, there s a lot of beauty and depth in these poems I live close to Steveston and have never been there, but after experiencing it through Marlatt s poems, I see a road trip in my future.
