    This is the third book of poetry from the Toronto based Sinclair though the first one I’ve read Or rather immersed myself in since I’ve read and reread it set the book aside for a few months and read it again Poets are often advised to go deeper to make space for profound meaning to emerge Sinclair’s poems show me how far short of that goal I’ve fallen They disturb and entrance me They make me look at the things of this world in a new wayIn talking about the difference between design and art Milton Glaser says “ the only purpose of art is that it is the most powerful instrument for survival—art is so persistent in all our cultures because it is a means of the culture to survive And the reason for that I believe is that art at its fullest capacity makes us attentive if you look at a work of art you can re engage reality once again and you see the distinction between what you thought things were and what they actually are Because of that it is a mechanism for the species to survive”Sinclair’s poems are truly art thenContinue reading at

    I'll call myself a new poetry reader and a new poet as wellI listened to Sue read this March and I was overpowered by the images she created and feelings she sturred in me I bought this book hoping to experience of the sameI can't say it succeeded at least not fully As I spent April writing at least a poem a day studying poetry and reading a couple of poems from this book each day I found myself growing away from her work and towards a concrete Germanic style Still each poem in here takes me to places I've never been before and I feel good about that I think her work can be desribed as a balance between concrete details and abstractness I find abstractness difficult to read hers difficult to read yet it paints scenery from a distance that I always seem to focus on in the end I suspect it might be a male female difference or a left right brain thing
