Winner - Hundred Dollar Poetry Contest #1
by Calgary’s Christine Falk
A quiet soul will stand quiet
in the light of all just treatment
but take away justice;
take away justice from the quiet soul
and a whisper becomes a wail.
Winner - Poetry Contest #3
by Okotoks's Erin Vance
My face is flaking- shaking like the air’s too thin
I can’t breathe
-skin shedding like a boa,
I kiss you in the vacant winter
Your lips have a taste I don’t always remember
it being like this.
Third Place - Poetry Contest #3
by Kingston's Bob MacKenzie

the cattle head for the hills
the cowboys in close pursuit
the prairie reverts to primal sea
trilobites appear across the land

My hair was blue and mouth was stained as well
As though I’d muttered ink on pages white, and
Around mine eyes collected tears of sea
