a portrait of me running as fast as the plant is growing
by Kiara Lindsay
no more poetry alum, Brayden writes of nmp.17:
In a portrait of me running as fast as the plant is growing, the poet runs toward themselves, again and again; each poem a fierce affirmation of the self. This is a slippery kind of poetics; Lindsay does not readily accept an objective sense of reality, and in reading these poems there is the feeling of having one’s own reality pulled out from underneath you, in a way that is both startling and thrilling. These poems explore the release that comes with embracing multitudes. An offensively good collection, from one of Naarm’s most authentic writers.
