Myna Wallin, author of A Thousand Profane Pieces (Tightrope Books, 2006) received an honourable mention for her poem “Dinner Theatre” in the CV2 2-Day Poem Contest. Congratulations, Myna!

Here are a few lines to get you in the spirit of things:

All too soon, the porcelain teacup collection

that had quivered at her rage, sat calmly,

waiting for a civilized tea to be set in the parlour.

Read the whole poem and the rest of the winning poems in the CV2 Open Issue (32.2) this fall or at http://www.contemporaryverse2.ca/.

Tightrope will be publishing Myna’s collection of short stories, Confessions of a Reluctant Cougar, in spring 2010.
