unfinishing – Launched April, 2022
This dream book of kaleidoscopic, holographic, mutagenic poems is haunted by the loops, aporias, and entanglements of time – memory, forgetting, oblivion, fortune telling, eternal (or not) returns, timelessness (however that may manifest), beginnings and endings (if indeed there are such things), and other spectral speculations where the intimate and the outward might exchange places.
A new and perceptive short review of Unidentified Poetic Object at ARC may be read here on Arc’s website.
Unidentified Poetic Object was longlisted for the Raymond Souster Award from the League of Canadian Poets.
I’m very pleased and honoured to be a tiny part of H. L. Hix’ wonderfully varied and challenging new anthology of inquiry into the nature and function of poetry, especially in uncertain times: Counterclaims: Poets and Poetries, Talking Back, just out from the Dalkey Archive (2020).
Check out this (short but starred) review from Quill and Quire, as well as Bruce Whiteman’s recent review of Unidentified Poetic Object in the Toronto Star; a pleasant surprise: Toronto Star.
