New poetry written by prize-winning BC poets, musicians, and artists, anthologized by Victoria's city poet-laureate. While in the world of politics there are still climate change deniers, the poets watch the warming seas, the dying birds slicked in oil, the whales, the jellies, the sea otters and the octopus. They stand, as close to the shore as possible, watch the slow turning tide. In this collection of poems from the coast of B.C., California, Washington State, to Alaska and as far away as Auckland, New Zealand and as far back as early 19th century Japan these poems explore our connection to the Pacific, what we know and don't know, how we've already changed the shore and the sea and what we fear losing. Poets in this anthology include John Barton, Brian Brett, Bruce Cockburn, Lorna Crozier, Brenda Hillman, Gary Geddes, Steven Heighton, Patrick Lane, Arleen Par�, Melanie Siebert, Ann Simpson, Rob Taylor, Patricia Young, Jan Zwicky and many more. In Refugium, editor Yvonne Blomer explores her deep concern with our sixth extinction and how stoic humans are continuing to wreak damage on the planet and her oceans.

The Broken Face

Author: Russell Thornton

Publisher: Harbour Publishing

ISBN: 1550178458

Category: Poetry

The poems in The Broken Face explore a sacramental, imaginative vision within contexts of crime, perception, memory and love. In this collection, Russell Thornton returns to the vital themes of intimacy and family, loss, fear and hope, bringing to each poem the essential quality of a myth or incantation. Reverent and revealing, within those familiar relationships he ushers in a connection with something transcendent: “A man has come floundering late in the night / to stand alone at the shore of a sleeping infant’s face.” The poems capture life at the periphery, whether describing homelessness or incarceration, or even the universal experiences of aging and mortality, love and fear of love, all of which bring the speaker into a detached yet energized state of watching and waiting: “the door that was my grandfather into our passing lives / will arrive at a house where each of us is his own door / that opens on our first selves, fundamental together.” With intense lyricism, Thornton displays a mastery of craft so complete as to be nearly invisible. While stunningly beautiful, his imagery is also in such complete service to the deeper emotional resonance of each poem that it feels inevitable, and contributes to making the collection deeply moving.

Rain Shadow

Rain Shadow is a collection of poetry that explores the fraught relationship between the natural world and humans yearning to connect with something greater than themselves. The poems range through destabilized lives and landscapes, fathoming presence and absence, transformation and oblivion. They outline the major questions of our time as the poet crisscrosses western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Witty, playful, serious, and heartsore, Rain Shadow seeks to understand the space in which people and nature are inextricably entwined. I walk like a bear-- I have a bear's gait-- but the gate to the bear's mind is closed. --from "The Bear and the Wind"

Selected Poems of Edward Loomis

Some of the free verse offered here was first published in Poems of a Cockroach (1970): this was a self-published pamphlet illustrated with drawings by Gerry Haggerty. EVERYMAN was made into a film with a rather dubious sound-track bringing the thing down. This book is a gathering of work of the last thirty years, and it is a selection, exactly. That might be its strong point. These poems are what I think of as my best stuff, and are offered as that.

Ausgewählte Gedichte und ein Werkstatt-Essay

Eine der selbständigsten lyrischen Stimmen der letzten Jahre Seit 1997 sind vier Gedichtbände der in Finnland lebenden Autorin im Wallstein Verlag erschienen. Die ersten beiden, »Mittsommerschnitt" (1997) und »Vom Eisgebreit" (2000), sind seit geraumer Zeit vergriffen. Grund genug, die Entwicklung und den Bestand des lyrischen Werks von Dorothea Grünzweig in einer Sammlung aus ihren ersten vier Büchern zu sichten und zusammenzufassen. Sprachverlust und Wiedergewinnen der Sprache, der Wechsel aus der »Vatersprache" in neue sprachliche Beheimatung, das Herüberleiten sprachlicher Traditionen in neue Kontexte, all diese Bewegungen kennzeichnen das Werk von Dorothea Grünzweig. Der Essay »Fuchsfeuer überm Laubraum", der den Band abschließt, bietet eine eingehende Auskunft der Autorin über ihr eigenes Schreiben und über die Entstehung von Gedichten allgemein.

The Transitive Nightfall of Diamonds

A Collection of Bad-Boy Poetry and Other Assorted Fish Tales

Author: Fred Schrott

Publisher: iUniverse

ISBN: 1491739177

Category: Poetry

Page: 300

A collection of unique bad boy poetry, The Transitive Nightfall of Diamonds is sure to send the reader into a cerebral tizzy—just keeping up is half the battle and all of the fun! The proverbial, "Long-time listener and first-time caller" takes readers on a journey of sight and sound, that both titillates and tantalizes the auditory senses. The poems can only be described as a psychedelic stew of various addictions meets whining divorcee, meets mental health, meets mid-life crisis, meets renewed youth, meets reality check, meets recovery. Quite simply, it’s a compendium of everyday problems for everyday people with a couple of solutions thrown in for good measure. In 2006, while contemplating divorce from his wife of thirteen years, author Fred Schrott left his home to travel around the southwest and Northern California in his Coachmen trailer. He was urged to start journaling by his marriage counselor but normal writing seemed a bit boring, so the author decided to purge his brain in poetic form. His goal right from the beginning for The Transitive Nightfall of Diamonds was to communicate with anyone and everyone through observation and humor. Don’t Hate the Player Hey, don’t hate the player. Get your hate on the game. I’m the same old bad boy with just a different name. Seventeen long years ago everything was all the same, but then the crazy traveling sent me to the zoo again...

Anda liebt Coarsegold Online, ein Online-Rollenspiel, in dessen virtueller Welt sie den größten Teil ihrer Freizeit verbringt. Dort kann sie eine Anführerin sein, eine Kämpferin, eine Heldin. Sie trifft dort Gleichgesinnte aus der ganzen Welt und findet neue Freunde. Es wird jedoch alles ziemlich kompliziert, als Anda sich mit einem Goldfarmer anfreundet - einem armen chinesischem Jungen, der mit seinem Avatar im Spiel unerlaubterweise wertvolle Gegenstände sammelt, um diese an reiche Spieler aus wirtschaftstarken Staaten verkauft, die sich so etwas leisten können. In Coarsegold sind solche Transaktionen strengstens verboten, aber Anda begreift sehr schnell, dass man nicht so leicht zwischen gut und böse unterscheiden kann, wenn es um den Lebensunterhalt einer realen Person geht. Das echte Leben stammt aus der Feder der gefeierten Jugendbuchautoren Cory Doctorow (Little Brother, For the Win, Boing Boing) und Jen Wang (Koko be good). Es ist eine sensible Geschichte über die Zeit des Erwachsenwerdens, Gaming, Armut und das Aufeinanderprallen verschiedener Kulturen.
