Digital Download- PDF or EPUB

Poems of great passion and tenderness, as close to rapture as a writer can get and still hold on.

E. Alex Pierce’s voice can be heard echoing down the long corridors of memory and myth.  It’s not that these poems live in the past; instead, they manage to bring it back to life with uncanny sensual details and an urgency that makes you realize some fires never really go out. Vox Humanais all lilt and discipline in its courtliness, its surrender to the theatre of the moment at its most alive.

"Pump organ, stops labelled
vox, vox, vox – tremolo, bellows filling air.

Take this creature into your throat pipe. Gristle,
heft, and hide. Rasp, slide the whistle – the alder
cuts its throat to speak its sound."

– from “Vox animalia”

E. Alex Pierce lives in East Sable River, Nova Scotia where she is developing a centre for writers and artists. Her work has been anthologized in Words Out There: Women Writers in Atlantic Canada (Roseway), The Best Canadian Poetry 2008 (Tightrope), and in Undercurrents: New Voices in Canadian Poetry (Cormorant).
