Apostrophes IV
speaking you is holiness
Governor-Generalís award-winning poet E.D. Blodgett continues his series of meditations on love, living, and loss. This intelligent collection offers more of Blodgettís lush imagery and deep questioning within the apostrophe form. A lovely offering from one of Canadaís leading writers.
