16.95

Paperback | 160 pp.

A new collection ablaze with urgency and radiant inquiry from a 2015 finalist for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry

“An act of deep attention to the physical self, to the positioning of bodies in the world, Aisha Sasha John’s THOU takes us on a journey through power and society, hatred and love, anger and healing, offering an intimate, clear-eyed look at our shared humanity. Original, funny, sensuous; at once profound and unpretentious, John’s lines are a pleasure and a revelation.” — Jury comment, Trillium Book Award for Poetry

A demand and promise; an obligation and challenge; a protest and call: I have to live. 
Juiced on the ecstasy of self-belief: I have to live. 
A burgeoning erotics of psychic boldness: I have to live.
In which sensitivity is recognized as wealth: I have to live.
Trumpeting the forensic authority of the heart: I have to live. 
This is original ancient poetry. 
It fashions a universe from its mouth.
