Overview

If you could write only one poem, what would it be? What should it say? Christian McPherson's One Poem explores these questions and by doing so delves into a self-examination of the artistic process, what it means to be an artist, and the expectations placed upon the artist. His exploration takes him from the Big Top to the far edges of the galaxy, a journey undertaken with self-deprecating humour, tenderness, and pop culture panache. With One Poem, McPherson climbs a self-made mountain of verse and jumps into the ether when he reaches the summit.
