Description

ÒThis is a reunion, ready to drink like a good Calvados from Northern France aged until the vintage is ready to be unveiled, shared. These poems are the impressions my world has left on me. The world beneath GodÕs pale bones.Ó ÑDavid A. Groulx, author

Editorial Review

David GroulxÕs Under GodÕs Pale Bones traces back 500 years through the drumbeat, through a history of genocide. Groulx's poems rumble through night skies, speaking of ink and blood as they split the darkness, calling on spiritual strength and ancestral medicine. These poems hunger for freedom, pose questions, and give voice to dreams and nightmares alike. GroulxÕs spirited poetics lament and love, singing stony earth-songs under sleepless skies. In this powerful collection, David Groulx dances you in a circle towards a new morning, burning. Ð Karl Jirgens, Editor Rampike magazine.
