Poetry for Children

Jay Brazeau

Jay Brazeau is an emerging Ottawa-based poet who resides on the outer edge of imagination – a world where cats sport houndstooth jackets, chickens sell eggs and a pigeon’s pockets are packed with popcorn. His poems have appeared in various anthologies, print editions and online magazines as well as in the public art project WHAT YOU’D NEVER EXPECT A BEAR TO WEAR (and Other Ironic Outfits)

Poems by Jay include:

Bleat Poet (or, A Lamb at the Slam)
Because I was asked to write The Great Canadian Sonnet
Going Nowhere
Why All Cats Need A Friend
