Summary

Wishing Upon A Rhyme’ is a tryst with verse. It’s a collection of 52 poems, spread over 9 themes that are diverse in context. The poems draw reference from the poetess’s own experiences, her interactions with others, and her observations of the world around her. They run the gamut from the quirky to the somber, the highs to the lows, the thoughtful to the thought-provoking. As you are taken through a roller coaster of emotions, the themes balance themselves out. Some poems express topics that need a closer look while some are already in the public eye. Some of them create angst whereas others are a reminder that all is not lost. Some espouse facts while some are a reflection of humanity. Overall, the poems can be construed as a humorous take on daily struggles, a canvas for harsh truths, a symbol of change, or a promise of better times; as you wish upon a rhyme.
Available since: 11/10/2022.

    Poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work so compelling is 'Barwin’s balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.' The Porcupinity of the Stars sees the always bemused and wistful poet reaching into new and deeper territory, addressing the joys and vagaries of perception in poems touching on family, loss, wonder and the shifting, often perplexing nature of consciousness. His Heisenbergian sensibility honed to a fine edge, the poems in this bright, bold and acutely visual book add a surreptitious intensity and wry maturity to Barwin’s trademark gifts for subtle humour, solemn delight, compassion and invention.
     
    'Between the freaky, funny filmmaker Guy Maddin and author Gary Barwin, Canada is producing some of the most innovative creative works of our time.' – Utne Reader

    Night Became Years is poetry in the sauntering tradition of the flâneur. Stefanik loafers his way over sacred geography and explores his own mixed heritage through the lexicon of Elizabethan canting language. Comparing the terminology of fifteenth-­century English beggar vernacular with a contemporary Canadian inner­-city worldview, the poems in Night Became Years unfold as separate entities while at the same time forming a larger narrative on the possibilities of poetry today and the nature of mixed­-blood identity.
