a survivor of child abuse, depression, drug addiction, boarding schools, suicide, youth discrimination, apathetic father figures, alcoholism and reality TV. |welcome to a new friend: Nicholas Gagnier

Retcon Poet.

 Retcon : 1. n. The common situation in pulp fiction (esp. comics or soap operas) where a new story “reveals” things about events in previous stories, usually leaving the “facts” the same (thus preserving continuity) while completely changing their interpretation.

NICHOLAS GAGNIER is a Canadian writer and poet from Ottawa, ON. He is a co-founder of Good Morning Bedtime Story, a suicide prevention project aimed at harnessing the powers of writing, music and visual art as a deterrent to suicide. The world is his observatory and words are the telescope through which he funnels it.

He is a survivor of child abuse, depression, drug addiction, boarding schools, suicide, youth discrimination, apathetic father figures, alcoholism and reality TV.

Nicholas lives in the Ottawa suburb of Alta Vista. When he is not writing, he enjoys music, television, reading and eating breakfast foods at 1 A.M.

51st State

It’s hard to write new anthems for this nation.

Carrying its phantoms and
factions,
flirtations with inaction, divisions ascend
into law.

A sinkhole replaces biodiversity, oil
fields grow over
seeds of their adversity.

The smell of burning is so pervading over
my kingdom-
in-waiting and we’re slowly learning
the land we’re
taught to love is no longer

mountains and forests
or solace
but self-absorbed
metropolises
singing
choruses
about bad blood.

Multiple
identities in
one,
relationship
conundrum that
would baffle any expert on
them.

No longer valleys
or plains
but airports and highways,
gangsters and sideways
justice,

curmudgeonly pundits
who occupy the
Starbucks down
my street, yelling something
about 99 per
cent.

Begging to whet
their tongue, wash away
redundancies and the thirst
that they accompany.

Raise your
cup! To assimilation,
economic stagnation and
may we all
find success in
the 51st state.

The Death of Paper Airplanes

Posted on August 2, 2013

world-record-paper-airplain-distance-460x304

In the death of
paper airplanes, I abstained from
the controls; someone else let ceiling fans
beat at every
crease they

know.

During the rough
descent, I was hiding in the cargo
hold.

Trajectory
redefined,
emergency landing emphasized.
Engine fires could never tell
a straight-faced
lie.

Pressure masks
swing forth, cued by the back
half of the whole
plane torn like a door off its
hinges

disappearing in
the
distance.

I was always
incapable of the
operational throw.

In the death of
paper airplanes, the gods have played
their hand, and they’ve chosen not to
fold.
