Crooked at the Far End (Book)


Crooked at the Far End, the latest book of poems in a series called The Man From Saskatchewan, travels, plays, and has a look around. Voices emanate from celebrities who inhabit cabins at Emma Lake, an old man sitting on a bench in Portugal, and the patrons of a fictional pub among others, all taking stock of the world we inhabit. A poet laureate details the incredible events that occurred during his tenure, “we saw industries of hope and growth/ and visitors from other lands sing/ in their own voices who they are/ We saw ourselves in a land alive.” This collection is an homage to the natural and physical world and how “We still and always love the tender fits/ our language endures, lost souls asleep before the gate.”
