Jackpine sonnet that was written for the launch of Geist's Jackpine Sonnet Contest and read at the launch party of issue 76 and the celebration of 20 years of Geist. The contest is closed now and the launch party is long gone (we're on issue 78 now) but this sonnet stayed with me, even if I couldn't remember the title or the event at which I heard it read (see my previous blog entry).
