Description

Flying Red Horse is a book of poetry, with a lyric essay, about fatherhood and masculinity, and the conditions of whiteness that pressure those terms for contemporary relevance and meaning. It looks at the precarity of relationships between people and place in diverse geographic and racial contexts; it addresses the crisis of climate change; and it considers parental connections to children in uncertain global circumstances.This book speaks to an experience of Canada and the United States, drawing attention to the conditions of spectacle and surveillance governing each nation. It asks where we stand in relation to the global technological power of connectivity and disconnection that disturbs contemporary social relations. Without seeking resolution, Flying Red Horse puts in correspondence four episodes of poetic meditation on the disparate facts composing the contemporary moment through the personal encounter of lyric language.
