Arguments for Lawn Chairs
The poems in Arguments for Lawn Chairs take multiple positions. The poems in Arguments For Lawn Chairs don’t trust your grandmother’s cooking. They have visited Pangea, they have visited Toronto and Montreal, the B.C. Gulf Islands, Tiberias, the tailing ponds near Sudbury, and they are still not satisfied, are still unconvinced, still need more proof. They are suckers for dovetailed boxes, winter fire pits, houses that sit not quite true, a rent garbage bag spilling its guts on Queen Street. The poems in Arguments for Lawn Chairs have some choice words for Orpheus, for Eurydice, for Beowulf, for Dumbledore and Hermione. The poems in Arguments for Lawn Chairsare devoid of hope, but are joyful nonetheless.
