Interruptions in Glass

This collection bites down on the metaphors memory stores, exploring perceptions of everyday exchanges, familial relationships, loves, and losses.

Is the language of our aging hysterical or historical? These poems supply a manual of conversations, studying the present by peeling back the past, letter by letter.  Snowmen, plays, rice and even disappointment are some of the images that provide places for readers to park and devour the connections.  It talks us through the metallic moments we continue to consume on the journey.

A subtly powerful collection that celebrates the shape and detail of a full life and its memories.

Portions of the Interruptions manuscript won the City of Regina Award in 2005.
