Free Will--something that many of us take for granted. "Repose" is the second collection of Canadian poet Adam Getty's work. Focusing on cultural freedom, and how humanity is masters of it's own destiny by comparing it to the natural and urban environments that so influence them. A voice that combines tradition and newer thinking, "Repose" is highly recommended to community library poetry collections and poetry lovers everywhere. Awed Gesture: Oh, Adrienne, whose eyes can cock a skein/of beauty, pierce skin in Lacanic jouissance, let fly no ordinary miracle, rein/in slight sight so deeper vision may prance/ and nicker-neigh through dark fields of mischance.
