the world is bigger than all those stories said

Sorry to be seeing news of the death of the poet Richard Sanger, on September 12 at the age of 59. Condolences to his family, friends, and readers. He was the author of several acclaimed collections, including Calling Home (2002) and Dark Woods (2018), as well as plays and essays. In a tribute published this week, Biblioasis reports that he completed his final collection of poems, Way To Go, just this month.

In 2020, Véhicule published a chapbook of his, Fathers At Hockey. Featured among the 19 poems included there were “First Ice,” “Misconduct,” “Leaf Talk,” and “Holy Mackinaw,” as well as the lines, above, of “Last Game.”
