Hoa Nguyen's "As Long As Trees Last"

Hoa Nguyen’s “As Long As Trees Last”

Some years ago, during a seminar on Joanne Kyger in one of my favourite classes at McGill (“Poetry at the Mid-Century: the New York School and the San Francisco Renaissance”), my professor compared Kyger’s fragmentary poems to icebergs: “almost all of it is under the page level,” he said. They hint at larger meanings, to...

Shawna Lemay: Things That Run Through My Head When Writing An Ekphrastic Poem

THINGS THAT RUN THROUGH MY HEAD WHEN WRITING AN EKPHRASTIC POEM My approach is in spirals, I walk around in my mind, around the painting. I try to see the supports, the stretcher and the nails, the frame might be important. It might not be. The tooth of the canvas is of particular interest of...
Abstract / Concrete #1: Judith Copithorne (By derek beaulieu)

Abstract / Concrete #1: Judith Copithorne (By derek beaulieu)

RUNES Discussion of concrete poetry tends to centre on male figures—personalities and practices which dominate the discourse. This domination suggests that there isn’t a preponderance of women in concrete poetry and that women the poets who are working in this subgenre must be minor or merely occasional. This is not the case. Building on my...

Percy Bysshe Shelley: A Defence of Poetry

Percy Bysshe Shelley: A Defence of Poetry

It doesn’t feel old, not at all, but it did feel male. Very male. Exclusively so. And so I’ve done a little intervention here. I’m not convinced it’s effective. Or even interesting…but I couldn’t resist myself either so I offer it here. It’s worth rereading in any case, right? If Twitter is any indication it...
George Murray: Whiteout

George Murray: Whiteout

George Murray’s Whiteout is a book about those moments when life’s curve balls, whether pivotal or minor, make you reconsider the decisions you’ve made, and where they have led you: a snowflake lands on your eyelash and blurs the scene; stretching the instant an instant longer, slurring outer and inner worlds. The opening poem, “Dante’s...

Lise Downe's "This Way"

Lise Downe’s “This Way”

An old wooden sign points both left and right – on it written ‘THIS WAY.’ The cover of Lise Downe’s most recent book is cleverly a sign, both literally [a signpost] and figuratively [semiotics], a symbol for language poetry, that is, a poetry that resists any definitive meaning. Working as both clue and caution, THIS...
Two from Derek Beaulieu's "No Press"

Two from Derek Beaulieu’s “No Press”

If you aren’t aware, Derek Beaulieu is a prolific artist who is extremely active within multiple art communities. No surprise then that his newest chapbook imprint No Press is just pumping out the jewels. What really makes No Press special is that Beaulieu curates work from big names and less big names he thinks [and...

The Poneme: Elliptical Machines

Darcie Dennigan runs a reading series in Providence, and a couple of years ago I bumped into my old friend Leeore on the street outside the bar that hosts the readings. Leeore, a musician and novelist, had the elegant good fortune to attend acting camp with Darcie years before. He must have recently discovered her...
