dc.description.abstract Deepwater Vee began as a meditation on the rivers I have worked on as a wilderness guide—the Nahanni, the Thelon, the Burnside, the Tatshenshini / Alsek, and others. The lyric poems take wobbly bearings and try to track the phenomenal world. This collection of nature poetry also considers two of Canada’s most threatened waterways—the Athabasca, which runs through the heart of the Alberta tar sands, and the North Saskatchewan, the river that ran by my home but which I had never paddled until recently, a river stressed by dams and upgraders, sewage and pesticides. These rivers push the poems into a contemplation of loss and into the terrain of Alexander MacKenzie’s dreams, a busker’s street riffs and the imagined wanderings of a grandmother who returns to inhabit the earth. en_US
