In 2006, Vancouver poet, fiction writer, critic and general troublemaker George Bowering wrote twelve longish poems designed to be chapbooks, with Tocking Heads written during the month of October. Taking his influence from media, the poems themselves thank sources such as San Francisco’s Chronicle, Vancouver’s Sun, Toronto’s Globe & Mail, Toronto’s Star, Niagara’s This Week, Welland’s Tribune, Metro Vancouver, and Victoria’s Times Colonist. In 2002, Bowering was named Canada’s first Parliamentary Poet Laureate.
