Selected and New Poems

by Anne McKay

tagged: canadian

These poems employ the short lyric as it derives from the haiku tradition. Through progressions of image clusters, anne mckay captures states of experience that elude the conscious mind: "but young / was there / . . . and heat / hung with scarlet hurry / and gates forgotten / under sly and hunting moons / of summer hurting." A high point of the collection is the sequence celebrating the life and paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe.
