Description

"The bears want not / the honey, but the bees. Carry a swarm / in your pocket to feed the beasts you meet."

Sweet is a gravity-clutched leap into personal emergency and the turbulent landscape surrounding ambivalence, including what lives in that landscape -- invited or not. Dani Couture's second collection of poetry takes the traveller from the emerald ash-borer infested trees of Essex County, Ontario, to the frozen lakes of Alaska and to points in-between. Dogged by tree-snapping winds, garbage-hungry bears, global uncertainty and war movie prophecy, the heart bends toward greater and deeper persistence through the intimate and at times anxious metre of Couture's new poems.

"Couture's . . . poems are precise, taut with meaning, and quietly filled with curiosities of fact and phrase . . ." - Books in Canada
