Provocative, funny, and brash, the poems in this collection leap from one surprising image to another, from poignancy to an outlandish, teasing delight.MoreWhat if red ran out is the assured first collection from one of Canadas finest young poets. Provocative, funny, and brash, the poems in this collection leap from one surprising image to another, from poignancy to an outlandish, teasing delight. The sheer tonal range of Grubisics poems is remarkable. They shimmer with playfulness yet deepen into contemplative gravity.These street-smart poems register the pulse of contemporary commodity cultures off-kilter pacing- the hyena at the bodega, as she calls it. They peer into back alleys of thought and bring forth our fears. But then, all at once, they race down the street again, laughing, reminding us of all we love and how we might hold onto it.
