<p><b>Poems for and about the incarcerated.</b></p> <p>Moving from riots to mall parkades to church, the poems in Bradley Peters' debut <i>Sonnets from a Cell</i> mix inmate speech, prison psychology, skateboard slang and contemporary lyricism in a way that is tough and tender, that is accountable both to Peters' own days &#34;caught between the past and nothing&#34; and to the structures that sentence so many &#34;to lose.&#34; Written behind doors our culture too often keeps closed, this is poetry reaching out for moments of longing, wild joy and grace.</p> <p>Drawing on his own experiences as a teenager and young adult in and out of the Canadian prison system, Peters has written both a personal reckoning and a damning and eloquent account of our violence- and enforcement-obsessed capitalist and patriarchal cultures.</p>
