Brian Bartlett (October 1, 1953, St. Stephen, New Brunswick).

"For Brian Bartlett, a gesture, a dream, a co-incidence or an inexplicable bit of synchronicity can lead to a poem. In Planet Harbor, he has put together a collection of poems with a strong narrative line which draws upon experiences as diverse as a bus driver's salute, the dreams of a forty-year-old batboy, a bus ride in Jerusalem, or a performance by Canuck fiddlers in Nagasaki." - from the rear.
