I Am The Gatekeeper.

The other night whilst I was working door for the Calexico show at the Rickshaw Theatre, a place itself steeped in much DTES Vancouver lore, I amused myself by making up some haiku regarding my role.

“I the guardian,

keeper of the night’s door,

bades enjoy the show.”


“Doorkeeper the Sphinx,

can you best my riddling,

of guest list questions?”

… and my favourite…

“I welcome you in,

yes I have checked the guest list,

your name is not here.”

I won’t be winning any literary prizes, but it was a fun effort. Something subversively pleasing about writing poetry while on the clock. Coat check is on the third floor, ATM is behind me to your right. Enjoy the show…
