Poet laureate Flesher invites all to inaugural Poetry Pleasure Cruise

Cruise winds from Hornby Island, through Denman Island, and lands at Roy’s Towne Pub in Royston

On Thursday Sept. 3, the Comox Valley’s first Poet Laureate, Kevin Flesher, and company will take their words to the waves.  Fellow poets and audience members are invited to take a Poetry Pleasure Cruise that winds from Hornby Island, through Denman Island, and landing at Roy’s Towne Pub in Royston.  Flesher will be joined by Two Dope Boys in a Cadillac and other local guests for readings on the ferries and three open mic performances. Flesher appears courtesy of the Comox Valley Community Arts Council (comoxvalleyartscom).

This unique and fascinating cruise itinerary is as follows:

3 p.m. – Cruise Buckley Bay to Denman Island

3:40 – Catch ferry from Denman to Hornby Island

4:30-5:30 – Performance at Hornby Old Ferry Terminal Ramp at the base of Central Road (Hornby poets invited to take part in Open Mic)

6 p.m. – Cruise Hornby to Denman

7-7:45 p.m. – Denman performance – Earth Club Factory 3806 Denman Rd. (Denman poets invited to take part in Open Mic)

8 p.m. – Cruise Denman to Buckley Bay

8:45-10 p.m. – Roy’s Towne Pub in Royston – Open Mic and Finale Performance

To join the cruise, simply show up at Buckley Bay in time to catch the 3 p.m. ferry. There is no cost other than your own transportation. Walking on, biking or driving arrangements are in your hands.

Denman and Hornby are spooning in the strait,

Nuzzling and cuddling and whispering in the night.

Crusty seaside salty jewels in our caramel cup.

The ferries bend time and slow the onslaught of the noisy world.

We will whisper back.

Join us.
