Join poets Ali Blythe and Monty Reid (The Luskville Reductions) for an afternoon of poetry at Octopus Books in Ottawa. Blythe will be reading from Twoism as part of a cross-country tour.
In this stunning debut collection, Twoism, by Ali Blythe, every poem is unerringly built with hatches and escapes. Every line shimmers with life and shivers with fleeting materials. Someone or something is always leaving. The early poems, almost claustrophobic in their double vision, gradually give way to poems of aching beauty, erotically charged by the myth of completeness. Ultimately, whether you emerge or disappear, you are transformed.
