Excerpted in Geist magazine Billeh Nickerson's first poetry book, The Asthmatic Glassblower, was shortlisted for the Publishing Triangle's Gay Men's Poetry Award. The hilarious and illuminating poems in his new collection, McPoems, are based on his years working at a particularly well-known fast-food restaurant; they paint a vivid picture of life behind the counter and will resonate with anyone who has ever held a fast-food job. Hold the pickle! from the book... 100 Cheeseburgers An elderly man you recognize as someone who moves slowly and pays for everything with change scrounged from the bottom of his pockets surprises you when he pulls out a wad of bills and orders 100 cheeseburgers. You get him to repeat himself a couple of times, 100 cheeseburgers, 100 cheeseburgers he says, tells you he intends to freeze them, they'll get him through the winter, no need for pesky walks on cold days, no danger of slipping and breaking a hip. 100 cheeseburgers will keep me going for a little while longer at least, I don't need much. Hot Apple Pie Burns your tongue so badly you can't taste anything three days later when you order another.… (més)

Think you don’t like poetry? Scarred by Wordsworth’s daffodils in school?

Scared you’ll be expected to parse or diagram or do something equally mind-boggling with the words that make up a poem?

Then you should definitely check out these poems.

They’re funny, sweet, and sad.

They’re observant, flippant and poignant.

Ever worked in fast-food? Ever eaten fast-food? Ever heard of fast-food?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you should give this one a try.

I’m positive that I’d’ve missed it but I’m so glad that I didn’t: sign me up for everything else he’s written.

I read this one because I was encouraged by an interview on CBC's The Next Chapter; if you want to know about some of the other titles I've enjoyed that they've recommended, I bookchat about some others here. ( )
