This is a stunning new long poem by an important Canadian poet. It is a poem of love against violence and loss. Written in the language of flowers, and reimagining the alphabet stunned by this history-changing event, it marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the murders of fourteen female students in Montreal on December 6, 1989. It is an incantation, a chant, a protest, a memento, an invocation, a prayer organized in fourteen sections. It is a bouquet of flowers. It challenges syntax, liberates lyric and the spellchecker. Many new words have been created, or old ones rewritten, especially using enjambment, a passionate and strikingly female device.
