Description

Low Centre of Gravity finds Michael Dennis in familiar territory. You'll laugh. You'll cry. Dennis' poems continue to be the narratives of movies you'd like to someday see. These poems ask the questions you'd really like answered, sauntering into the room and staking claim. The story-telling continues, the good, the bad and the sadly tragic. With Low Centre of Gravity Dennis remains "direct, curious, pissed off and honest".

Contributor Notes

Born in London, Ontario, in 1956, Michael Dennis published his first poems in the early '70s. He has published eight books of poetry and more than 25 chapbooks. His working life has included everything from building engines for Ford and working for Falconbridge Copper in a northern Ontario mine to washing dishes in a strip club. He ran a boutique hotel in the 80s, was the Santa for the Kmart in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and opened a non-profit ESL school in Jablonec nad Nisou, Czechoslovakia, immediately following the Velvet Revolution. Michael has driven a taxi and a truck and had a brief stint as a private chauffeur. Now semi-retired, he lives in Ottawa, where he writes the popular blog Today's book of poetry.
