Description: In the final episode of "Bookmobile" (but just for now, we hope) Gabriola Island poet and essayist Naomi Wakan -- also Nanaimo's first Poet Laureate -- offers her own aesthetics of poetry, and we get to hear more of her own work than, modestly, she has offered before. Music: John Field's Nocturne #5 in Bb, George Gao performing "Galloping Horses" in concert, and the Carolina Chocolate Drops "Cornbread and Butter Beans." "Now that's a sensible, everyday topic for a poem," says Naomi.
