Description

A rock-littered backyard in east-end Ottawa slowly becomes a garden in Monty Reid's looping cycle and re-cycle of anti-paradisial poems. With his companion species, the shovel, Reid digs and un-digs, turning up the playful, the prickly, and the dangerous. Garden is yet another example of Reid's original vision and restlessly independent voice.
