dalton derkson is a punk poet from the prairies. He runs Hurtin’ Crüe Press, a D.I.Y. collective through which he has self-published too many chapbooks. A little while ago, he was superkicked by The Party Animal and his poems haven’t been the same since. His work has appeared in ottawater, (parenthetical) and In/Words magazine. He is pretty sure he’s his mom’s favourite poet.
