    1. At sunset, bending out the windowKnowing, sidelong, fields in the avenuesMy eyes burn anyhow bu I don't care, I'm still readingthat Book by Erin Mouré.How she makes me ache! She was a creek's companionlost south of St. Clair, a walking prisoner in the city's freedom.But the way she saw houses,And the way she stopped short to look in the avenues,And gave herself to things, in the same wayYou'd gaze at trees,And lift eyes down Vaughan Road to see where you're headed,And notice small crocuses puls [...]


    2. One of several reasons I have long wanted to learn Portuguese is Fernando Pessoa, this time in one of his many heteronyms as Alberto Caeiro. (The other reasons: fado, forró.) On this particular outing with Portuguese, it was from yet another filmic reference in Manoel de Oliveira's Singularidades de uma Rapariga Loura [Eccentricities of a Blonde-haired Girl] (2009) [an earlier encounter being from a Quebec film]. Which brought me then to Erín Moure's Toronto-anchored adaptive translation into [...]


    3. I'm very reluctant to "rate" books of poetry as I am really not qualified to do more than say whether I liked it or not! Did I like this book of poetry? Yes. "Things are things and have no meaning" is the central theme of this, I'd say, and quite a feat to convey that in a book of poetry!



    4. Interesting. I won this book so didn't really realize what it was until I started digging in . I thought it was an actual translation. THis was much better
