Ron Base, besides being a former Toronto Sun member of the Windsor Mafia, author and a globe-trotting movie executive, is a poet.
It’s The Sanibel Sunset Detective.
Fast-paced, funny, a little reflective.
With a couple of murders and a twist, you see.
The hero of the tale is a guy named Tree.
So a reminder gentle reader, a kindly poke
Not to miss the gathering of literary folk,
Tomorrow at five at P.J. O’Brien, an Irish Pub
Where you can meet the author and eat the grub.
Just be careful where you move, and how you look
’Cause that son of a bitch may sell you a book!
That is Tuesday night, 5 to 8 p.m.
