This is one of my fave (amongst many) special spots in Toronto - it’s right behind Coach House Press on Huron St. If you haven’t been there, I highly suggest you pop your head in one of these days (they usually have an open house and tour of the presses for Doors Open, which is the last weekend in May). It’s a poem by bp Nichol and after he died, they used to fill the word “lake” in every day with water.
“Mast is an ingenious power-free humidifier made of leftover cypress shavings from other craftwork. Put water in the boat-shaped base, and the wood absorbs the water, humidifying the room and emitting the subtle scent of cypress.”
