POEM OF THE MONTH

The poems are presented in alphabetical order.

So many moments, texts, and male and female poets have inspired and encouraged me, including poets who, like me, are constantly working and reworking their poetry and their voices. They hail from all over the country, but here I am focusing on texts by poets who have really moved me and whom I have heard in person thanks to Éditions Perce-Neige, the Nuit Blanche de la Poésie 2017, the Festival de Poésie de Caraquet and the Festival Acadie Rock au Coude (Moncton), 2018 edition.
