This debut English-language collection written by a Trillium Award-winning Francophone poet strikes with endless patterns and infinite grains. Through expert wordplay, technically sound poetry, and bold imagery, Charlebois offers a wistful approach to the moments we encounter most often in life. Each poem pulses with creativity as the poet breathes life into each of the thought-provoking pieces of his puzzle. It is this welcome interference with expectations and strong command of language that returns us to the overlooked, constantly changing worlds that only appear altered after the sands of time have passed.
