The Snowbird Poems
It’s a matter of knowing winter. Snowbird travels south, seeks warmth, and begins waiting. Robert Kroetsch’s new collection, The Snowbird Poems, is a brilliant flight of departure. Beached where he watches a drowning horizon, teased by romance, Snowbird lets his responses become a message in a bottle to the lost and for the found. Appearing at first wearing bifocals and drinking from a fake coconut, Snowbird goes on to retrieve the footprint of story from the ocean of memory.

Fun stuff to read. Much of it is reflective on the nature of reading poetry, which is super cool. Half of it is bizarrely strange. What is great about Kroetsch is that he says more through what he doesn't say. Read full review
