continua
Chris Turnbull

poetry / October 2015

$20.00




ISBN
978-1-928107-04-0
About the Book

Chris Turnbull’s long-awaited debut, the visual and multi-voice continua, displays a remarkable ease across genre and structural boundaries, as well as an ease in which repeated readings both simplify and expand the complexity of a poetic that could only be described as incredibly precise. continua is thick with physical description, scrap and sound, composing pockets of text placed very deliberately against a carved white space.

Understander
N.W. Lea

poetry / June 2015

$15.00




ISBN
978-192810703-3
About the Book

N.W. Lea's second collection of poetry Understander finds the author tempering his trademark associative style with a more focused lyricism. Here, the themes of alienation and the fragility of mental life become central. Still, hope and self-compassion can be found in the absurd—the place where pure and earnest tender-heartedness meets the crazed catharsis of dark humour; where one feels at once regal and ashamed, where, "what we need/is an exorcism, or at least/an enema."

by Amanda Earl

$20.00




ISBN
978-0-9783428-9-0
About the Book

A riotous assemblage of long poems focusing on the crazy years of 1920s Montparnasse – a melting pot of artists and poets. Kiki plays with language and form, taking the first person familiar format of journal to streams of language to snippets of visual imagery to present the wildness of those years, focusing on the persona of Kiki de Montparnasse, a maverick who much like the poems presented here – cut across intellectual and artistic boundaries. Sexy and smart.

Singular Plurals
by Roland Prevost

poetry / October 2014

$20.00




ISBN
978-1-928107-00-2
About the Book

An incisive and playful first book exploring language and space, Singular Plurals presents us with fictive – often surreal – images encapsulated in text that is layered in meaning, playful with language and polyphonous in tone. The poems explore the irregular spaces and tangential lines that separate and connect us, sometimes by gazing from a great distance, then zooming in for the close-up shot. Prevost is a winner of Bywords' John Newlove Poetry Award, and a self-described "explorer of here / now's edge." Singular Plurals is his first full-length book of poetry.

Casemate Poems (Collected) by Joe Blades

poetry

$18.00




ISBN
978-0-9783428-1-4
About the Book

From: Pesme iz kazamata (Beograd: Rad, 2005)
To read Canadian poet and artist Joe Blades’ book of poetry casemate poems means to get knowledge about one very specific way of understanding poetry today. […] Blades’ poetry is written by activating different layers of human knowledge and by articulation of this knowledge, for example, in narrations of history and geography. He moves in time (historical perspective) and in space (for example, actual events in the world at the time, such as the attack on the World Trade Center, or pointing to the contemporary racist attitudes of specific countercultures.

Excerpt from Introduction, by Barry McKinnon: If sex is the subject, where begin? What occasion within the subject''s range prompts a poet to write? This may be what the literary snoop wants to know but need not know. The poem becomes evidence of its own detail / energy and in some instances, evidence of the poet''s struggle and inability to get to "it".

ISBN
978-0-9781601-7-3
About the Book

Was it a manufactured hologram or the fog rising from a lake? In Nicholas Lea’s first collection of poetry, the question coalesces in an obvious yearning toward Surrealism and a supreme interest in aesthetics. Everything is movies wrestles with the myth-making of mass culture and high art but the collection – accidentally? – rolls off the bed and onto the floor, a heap of laughing limbs.
