Summary:
"To commemorate a tragedy-and celebrate a subway line. Toronto the not-so-good? This series of poems is a response to the 2012 Danzig Street mass shooting at a block party in Toronto's Scarborough area, during a period when gun violence had reached a peak in the city. Here the city's east end becomes a source of poetic inspiration, and the east-west subway line as the organizing structure. Going from west to east, each poem is informed by a TTC subway stop, inspiring form, voice, and content. We get meditations, commentary, and visual poetry. The conclusion is a pair of poems, both titled "Rouge": the first makes use of reports, songs, and tweets that appeared following the shooting, and the second is a lyrical response."-- Provided by publisher.
