for a cappuccino on Bloor
kath macLean

Winner of the New Muse Award 1997

“stunning achievment, a highly polished series of exquisitely shaped poems and sequences . . .”
—Judith Fitzgerald, Books in Canada

“These poems are beautiful & mysterious & ambiguous—allowing, requiring the reader to fill in the gaps. Many of the poems are sensual, evocative; they speak of desire . . . Along with the narrator, ‘our hands become sticky with words.’”
—Carol Malyon, 1997 judge

After years of growing up in Toronto, kath macLean moved to Edmonton, “where,” she says, “the sun almost never blinks & the sky (like a thesis) goes on forever.” Her poetry and prose have appeared in CV II, The Fiddlehead, Fireweed, Wascana Review and Other Voices.
