This series of poems is a response to the 2012 mass shooting at a block party on Danzig Street, Scarborough (Toronto). The city?s east end becomes a source of poetic inspiration, and the intersecting subway lines provide the organizing structure. From west to east, and north to south?Kipling to McCowan, Finch to Downsview?the stations on the way inspiring form, voice, and content, meditation, commentary, and geometry. The City is the Poem. The Discovery Walk, inviting my well-worked Clarks to pry my feet from the confines of the station, wasn?t necessary to make a most marvelous Discovery: the bus sign, hung with steel ?from ?Old Mill?

Adrian De Leon is an Abagatan (Southern) Ilokano writer and cultural educator from Baranggay Bagong Tanyag in Manila by way of Scarborough, Ontario. He teaches Philippine histories in university classrooms, community events, and martial arts gyms. He lives in Toronto.

"Rouge is spiky and caustic yet delights in more ways than you could count Toronto the Good?s abundant pleasures, quirks and treasures." --Philippine Daily Inquirer "For De Leon, Toronto and Scarborough are cities filled with life and inexhaustible rhythm. They?re messy, complicated, boring, romantic, fun, dangerous, and, for better or worse, discoverable." --Debutantes
