We are excited to report that Floating Up to Zero has just arrived!
In his new collection of poems, Ken Norris sings the present moment, precariously balanced between a frozen past and a fluid future. The poet at the centre of this journey inward finds himself trapped in his house in mid-winter, trying to talk his way out toward a world of infinite possibilities beyond a slowly melting history.
Meditative, incisive and light in their touch, these poems tell us: “The old star charts were perhaps a little out of date.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.”
