Did you know that our beloved Top 10 Columnist Matthew Kreider is in the midst of moving to Canada from the U.S.? Says Matthew, as he juggles the boxes…
I dream of a world where artists oversee all matters pertaining to customs and immigration, where only Manchego cheese-eating poets ask me to document the contents and value of each box.
“It’s all water, ” I’d say. “Who can itemize or assign a dollar amount to something like water?”
He smiles when I promise to send him an autographed glossy of Glynn on his bicycle.
“Oh, and please don’t bother with those immigration forms, ” he says. “Just send us a poem after you settle. Or at least some WordCandy.”
