Playwright, poet, prose writer, as well as former gravedigger, hotline psychic (no really), line cook, chef, waiter and a few other things in between, Patrick de Moss lives in the Vancouver area with his ghosts and good coffee. He is the author of the short story collection “Kings of Nowhere”, available on Amazon.ca, as well as three chapbooks of poetry – “Equinox”, “Lunephile” and “Lois Lane’s Lost Letters”. While trying to keep body and soul together he is working on a collection of poetry “Fertile Ground” and a novel that he seems to be keeping secret from even himself.

How small things saved the world

the rain came after all

seconds after you fell asleep, a gentle trickle on the window past tattered curtains

rivulets caught in yellow neon, prisms from the pizza store below us

& the promise of buttercups, dandelions, mustard grass tomorrow

small signs of spring, nothing glorious

but getting there, always getting there


& you slept with your mouth half open, soft hair on your upper lip caught in that constant light

that small fuzz you always wanted to erase, covered when you saw it in the mirror, blushing

& when you slept

I would kiss my finger and try to touch your lips without waking you

to bless them

every little hair you were embarrassed by

these were never imperfections, nothing of you asleep against me ever was*


in my best hours I know these things

hours when my wild, willful and weak heart grows


a quiet like the space of sound between each raindrop


and in it I smell bulk shampoo

bought for the two of us to share together, the press of your slightly damp hair against the pillow

your body slightly damp in sweat pressed against me as you sprawled over the entire bed

when you still felt safe in my arms

when we were still allies

still more than the sum of the worst in us

the breathing in cancelling the darker moments out

until only the breathing remained

only the breath moving us through the rainy night until morning

getting there, always trying

just to get to sunrise.

Angelica Poversky is 5’3″ of vertically challenged creative passion.

She can be frequently found frolicking on hiking trails, writing articles and stories or twiddling her fingers on various instruments and organizing events. She’s a performance poet, musician, improv-er and a passionate nature lover.

She is the founder and festival director of Richmond’s first youth-led outdoors arts festival, Arts in the Park and a guitarist and rapper of the folk group, Goons.

She volunteers primarily with CPAWS, HUM and World Poetry. She gets paid with busking coins and children’s desire to learn guitar. Occasionally, she racks in the dollars through poetry or  acting as a statue.

If you see Angelica in her natural habitat, she is probably working on her first poetry chapbook “She Is”,  hosting her radio-show or training to be a stand-up comedian.

Angelica is Vancouver’s Top 24 under 24 and a Richmond Arts Award Finalist. In 2014, she was an author at National Culture Days, TedX Presenter and a speaker at the CHIMO Violence Against Women Conference.


Deep Satisfaction,
The right click purchase button is on the bottom of the tongue of the gods.
Buy clothes. Buy the cosmos: You are the best and the most
Not only is art dead,
But I can buy the man who quoted that and then the other who
Said, “Art is what you can get away with.”
Buy me.
Andy Warhol was campbell soup king of overconsumption
And just like with any pop-art dreamer, every pop-artist, pop corn star, porn star,
Selling themselves to be the pope of the Hollywood boulevard,
Pop-culture’s pop-tart,
is manipulated and now second to me,
The coca-cola machine.
Actually, I am more like The coca-cola God. People are robo
broke machines hoping for a psycho
cope vaccine to fill their empty space
You’re the epitome of pain postponers.
Buy me.
Your tragedy is travesty in my fabricated, factory eyes.
Buy me. Your plastic dreams are gems, never good enough. Buy me. You are hung up on being better.
Buy me. Better than others. Buy me.
Buy me.
Snort coca-cola like it’s in your bloodstream as addictive as dopamine.
A cap twisted, popped. The voice of the siren, with every can shot open, a little cracked, a little inverted
onto your tongue.
Then you stop.
Buy me
You brain is a time wave machine, the soda pressing, it’s so repressing the coda of cooked coke until you
can’t cope with not being the pope yet at the boulevard.
1981 – Coke is it! 1985 – America’s real choice. 2001 – Life tastes good. 2009 – Open Happiness
You are still not happy, just corn syrup, cane sugar and caffeine.
It is the fear that I am not good enough nor will ever be. Fear. Becomes the light of my existence.
Fear.  You won’t buy me.
Fear. Stop selling me.
