The following essay was written collectively by the Vehicule poets as a dialogical account of what the Vehicules meant in the seventies and eighties, and what poetry means to them today. A much abridged version of this collective piece, in combination with Ken Norris's short essay "The Vehicule Poets and Second Generation Postmodernism" appears in print in the critical collection Language Acts: Anglo-Quebec Poetry, 1976 to the 21st Century, edited by Jason Camlot and Todd Swift.
