Now I Was Not In This Dream

originally posted in You’re Our Man Anthology.

But you were, Leonard.
We sat night-cornered in a café
wringing the lyrics of this poem,
ironing the lines with our mouths.

Letters like severed legs marched out.
They flattened to our will. Evidence
ballooned by us as cries in thought bubbles.

(poetic response to “Morning Song” from The Spice-Box of Earth)

Shortlisted for the Toronto Book Awards, praise for Æther: An Out-of-Body Lyric:
“Catherine Graham’s seventh book of poetry is an intricate reverie, in poetry and prose, which floats back and forth in time and between memories, dreams and reflections.” – Toronto Star
 
“It is a masterpiece. The melding of poetry and prose into a beautiful and heartbreaking skein, gradual revelation, going back/going forward, weaving in and out, repeating and broadening the meaning as you go. A journey that is fascinating, heartrending, and courageous.” – Marilyn Gear Pilling
