- Author: John, Aisha SashaDate:Created2017Summary:
This finalist for the 2018 Scotiabank Giller Prize is ablaze with urgency and radiant inquiry from a 2015 finalist for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry.
A demand and promise; an obligation and challenge; a protest and call: I have to live.
Juiced on the ecstasy of self-belief: I have to live.
A burgeoning erotics of psychic boldness: I have to live.
In which sensitivity is recognized as wealth: I have to live.
Trumpeting the forensic authority of the heart: I have to live.
This is original ancient poetry.
It fashions a universe from its mouth.Genre: Canadian poetryOriginal Publisher: [Toronto], McClelland & StewartLanguage(s): EnglishISBN: 9780771050701, 0771050704Collection(s)/Series: Griffin Poetry Prize 2018
