Ottawa poet/artist Dennis Tourbin passed away at the age of 51. A chapbook of his poems, entitled, The Stream and Other Poems, was recently published by rob mclennan, in which we find two long poems and one shorter one, truly worth the read. Dennis' poems flow like water, and move through the spaces of reflection like dreams. His death is a sad loss to poetry. /ez
"Dennis Tourbin painted words in vivid colours and referred to his paintings as visual poetry. He explored the area between painting and literature and moved the word beyond the printed page."
