“Ambrosia” has been ‘published’ on the bulletin board at the Liberty Bakery at Main and 21st for about ten years. It has had various notes posted on or near it, by the owner—‘This stays here.’ ‘No posters over this one.’ It is my gift to the owners, Liberty and Gunnar Gustafson, who are ninety or near. They reopened here, due to popular demand, after closing ‘Elsie’s Bakery’ in Kitsilano.
The poem won
Honourable Mention at the Words on Robson Poetry Contest in 2006.
