Overview

A follow-up to his acclaimed The Porcupinity of the Stars, Moon Baboon Canoe is filled with Gary Barwin's trademark humour, invention, musicality and craft and continues his exploration of family, modern life, nature, wonder, philosophy, and the absurd.These witty and surprising poems confront subjects as diverse as time machines, elves, hummingbirds, birth and cows yet manage to explore perennial themes of poetry: delight, mortality, childhood, love, the natural world, and squirrels. It is a baboon-paddled canoe of a book guided by the moon, and a round each bend in the river we find the sources of our strength, consolation, goofiness and joy.
