Class Clown (Biblioasis) takes classic themes of love, death, and time and presents them in short, witty poems all based on rhyme, puns, and wordplay. We chat with the Toronto-based poet about his collection (and share two short poems from it), astute life advice like "I before e except after c," and his influences.
