Poetry Lives Here
In Poetry Lives Here, nineteen young writers, aged 15–25, bring poetry [back] to life. Written and edited by young Canadian poets, this supplementary publication of Contemporary Verse 2 first asks “Where does poetry live? Is it even still alive?”, then takes us through a [place] and no place on the verge of insanity; where bodies and minds are dissected into code and data; where meaning is made byte-sized and indigestible; where childhood is regurgitated; where dog parks are tagged with emblems of god in post-neo-hipster-fashion; where the only tangible thing we offer is the expectation of punctuation; and answers “Poetry is [it lives] — here.”
