What a joy to spend days with The Days You've Spent by Sue Bowness. Excellence is her standard, structure and musicality her method, narrative spiced with whimsy her mode. Even while wondering its worth getting out of bed to face the day, Bowness flourishes imagery flooded with light. Here are poems that intrigue, provoke, entwine, and always shine.

Ironically I bought this book in value village and read it in two sittings! Ironic because of page 68!
A few great poems and some wonderful groups of words! I wasn't blown away but did enjoy her style and honesty!
Much better than so many Canadian poets out there who truly believe they are amazing with no proof!!
