“These are poems that demand you pay attention. Pithy and persuasive, Healey’s “Heritage Moments” series in particular knocks out an offbeat version of the Canadian National Anthem that makes me want to rise and place hand over heart. Begin with the End in Mind is strange, seductive, and brainy.”
— Emily Schultz, author of Songs for the Dancing Chicken and The Blondes

“Who needs a tightrope to stroll across Niagara Falls when you have the prose poem—pliable, surreal, infinitely hackable. These poems from Emma Healey signal the arrival of an exciting, nimble, new voice.
— Sina Queyras, author of Expressway and Lemon Hound

Healey [is] a poet well-versed in critical and theoretical discourse who also has a keen eye for the everyday and the real.
