About our feature poet:
C-Command is a rapper, poet, and flow enthusiast. He seeks to capture and represent the euphoric momentum of a human mind making sense of things. He has a background in acting for film and stage, and in 2012 he got a B.F.A. in Theatre Performance from Concordia in Montreal. In April he placed 2nd at the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Championship in Vancouver. Outside of word arrangement, some of his favourite things to do are jamming, party-dancing, and chess.

Pablo Neruda, who could write the saddest lines and
taught me to say I love you.
All those spaces in me that you filled
i thought to myself yesterday
how is it possible that I am going to die without kissing you again
i lost so many things to you, things i’ll never get back and I will go the rest of my life
not kissing you
also, it’s difficult to review poetry like Ian Williams’ book Personals when your friends steal them and never return them. It really slows down the process, if you can believe it.
my summer has been non-stop poetry, I can’t even believe it.
