Alex’s phenomenal new book of prose poems is out with Nightwood. I can’t recommend this enough. I’ll let Jen Currin’s great blurb spell it out:
“Prose poems, soundtracks, minifictions—the lyrical, multi-faceted pieces in The things I heard about you record the ways in which language makes and unmakes us.”
Buy the book here (or at your local bookshop!):

Congratulations to Rachel Rose, Vancouver’s new Poet Laureate! Amazing! Looking forward to the great work I know she’ll do.
The uber-talented and clever Mr. Morse wrote a series of “meta-texts”looking at different themes and ideas through the lens of many different poets. It veers from writer to artist to musician and composer with a dextrous hand. Well worth a read.
you can find Mr. Morse here:
“My antagonism toward conventional religions of all kinds is focussed on the patriarchal structure. I don’t want to become more involved with that, thank you. I want to become less involved.”
Final proofs are done! Book hits the press early next week. Actually holding breath. Check on me in a bit, please.
