You Have Hair Like Flags

You have hair like flags (winner of the Canadian bp Nichol prize for poetry 2010) is a fable based on the young economic and political migrants/refugees who leave Africa in small boats with hearts set on a nearly impossible journey to get to mainland Europe. Lost at sea on a makeshift raft – a young man battles with the days before certain death, and allies himself with a shark.

You have hair like flags was composed of a chapbook, a 30-day-long wall drawing performance in Montreal, and an installation of burning rafts set off the coast of Reykjavík.Book*Hug (2014)
