“Courageous…bold…disturbing…a timely and important new addition of original poems to the reputation of an established poetic voice”
Josie Di Sciascio-Andrews characterizes her new book of poems, as follows
“Metaphorically carcinogenic, viral corruption threatens the world in an era of surveillance, monopolizing oligarchies and moral decay.
From an unexpected diagnosis, to the loss of a precious mother, to greed endangering our ecosystem, Metastasis guides us poetically through a dark, heartless underworld of invisible machinations.
Like Virgil leading Dante through the circles of Hell, it shines a light upon the rot of both the physical and spiritual disease spreading endemic aided by artificial intelligence’s net trap. As above, so below, there is a weird energy tearing everything asunder
Through the revelatory power of writing, philosophical ponderings and snippets of scientific data, this book illuminates us with emergent concepts never before tackled in a poetry collection, not in Canada and nowhere else.”
