Deadlift: Poems (Selected for Best Canadian Poetry 2013) --- Sharon McCartney | Numéro Cinq
Sharon McCartney‘s last contribution to Numéro Cinq was reprinted in Best Canadian Poetry in English 2012 and now she looks for a repeat with a stunning poetic sequence that makes a metaphor out of weightlifting and love. These are beautiful touching poems replete with incisive perceptions about the relationship of love and pain, poems that try to reconnect art, emotion and the body.
