Girls and Handsome Dogs by Norm Sibum
Winner of The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 2002
A lonely woman in the country attempts a crossword during a thunderstorm. Police stop a suspicious character who endeavours to explain his unusual behaviour. On his way to a dinner date, a man walks and wonders if his ‘need’ is too obvious. Often comic, sometimes somber, these poems offer a narrative of the exotic and the ordinary, the ridiculous and the sublime.
