Curated by Judy Gaudet


These boys will never outgrow their jean jackets,
this photograph, the cliffs and the tattered maps

the wind wears into them. They will not lose
their way among the shoreline’s rocky bruises,

or forget where the best spots are to hide
from the heat of an afternoon sun. It’s the tide,

this boy, and the way he points at a wave
that will preserve them, the hand and how

it staves their leaving; they’re looking down,
perhaps at some broken piece of driftwood

crowned with rotting seaweed, some bundle swept
from the camera’s flash. None of them expect

to be preserved this carefully, their hands
in their pockets, or pulling up strands of grass.

—David Hickey, from In the Lights of a Midnight Plow, Biblioasis, 2006. Another book by David from Biblioasis is Open Air Bindery, 2011.

Island poet and avid poetry reader Judy Gaudet selects a poem by a PEI poet each month.
