Hamilton’s self-declared dubpoet laureate, Klyde Broox, has invited local poets - of all shapes and sizes - to declare their love of place with an innovative poetry smash - ODE TO MY POSTAL CODE.
I've contributed - insisting that Klyde 'stand and deliver'. Here's a sample of Klyde's work, and my own submitted piece, about my studio place on Hamilton's beach strip: L8H 6Y5.
