Arthur Bull

Arthur Bull lives on Digby Neck in the Bay of Fundy regional of Nova Scotia. He has previously published two book-length collections of poetry, and two chapbooks.
His poems and translations from classical Chinese have appeared in numerous Canadian and US journals. Arthur Bull is also a musician and has been active on the Canadian improvised music scene since the 1970’s.  He has also worked in various capacities as an activist for the rights of small-scale fishermen.

In 2009 he visited the Protestant cemetery in Rome, where Keats and Shelley are buried, as well as political thinker Antonio Gramsci, whose grave inspired Pier-Paolo Pasolini’s long poem, ‘Gramsci’s Ashes’, and was reminded of why he became a poet in the first place.

A murmuration
of starlings churn
and pour their thickness
between office towers
inflating the square
they knot and loosen
clouds of sixteenth notes
before they leave to
sleep under the bridge
