Johnny phoned in a tizzy this afternoon to tell me that Jian Ghomeshi was on Q announcing that I was one of the winners of the “6 Word Love Story” contest. I heard the announcement of the contest while driving over to Sackville on Tuesday, so I had 4 hours of time in the car to mull over my entry. Which ended up as:
I cut your toenails.
It’s a poem inspired by actual toenails. And actual love. I won, it seems, in the category “real little love stories” and won a showdown against “Saw her today, cried all night” thanks to judging (audio) by The Trews.
It’s been a heady, poetry-filled week.
