Floating Up to ZeroFront Cover
Floating Up to Zero
By Ken Norris

In Floating Up to Zero, Ken Norris introduces us to “a traveller from an antique land,” though in this case that traveller’s story is not Shelley’s meditation on the vanity of ancient kings, but rather the poet’s ­meditation on the here and now, on the present moment, precariously balanced between a certain frozen past and an uncertain fluid future. Meditative, incisive and light in their touch, these poems tell us: “The old star charts were perhaps a little out of date. That is, new stars had since been found, though sometimes they were only streetlights, mistaken.”

for love and autonomy
By Anahita Jamali Rad

Anahita Jamali Rad deals with the stuff of everyday life: work and sex, friendship, and love. Her critical attention to the structure of these social relationships creates a poetics of trial and failure, questioning the very “culture” responsible for its making as she forges a way for the possibility of radical resistance in language.

From the PoplarsFront Cover
From the Poplars
By Cecily Nicholson

From the Poplars is the poetic outcome of archival research, and of listening to the land and the stories of a place. It is a meditation on an unmarked, twenty-seven and a half acres of land held as government property: a monument to colonial plunder on the waterfront of a city, like many cities, built upon erasures. From an emplaced poet and resident of New Westminster, this text contributes to present narratives on decolonization. It is an honouring of river and riparian density, and a witness to resilience, tempering a silence that inevitably will be heard.
