Invasive Species (Wolsak & Wynn, 2014)
Due to haphazard, holiday packing, I’m faced with writing a micro-review of Claire Caldwell’s Invasive Species while my copy is 800 kilometres away. This is a particular shame because the debut contains several of my favourite poems of 2015 (such as “The House with Snakes in its Walls”). Having sat here for a moment, weighing options, I’ve decided not to piece together an impression of Invasive Species (which I read several months ago) via the help of online mentions and excerpts. Instead I simply recommend checking it out.
