Shatter the Glass, Shards of Flame contains a wide array of narrative and confession-lyric poems written over the last fifteen years, examining the various joys and tragedies, the losses and redemptions, of the poet’s life. These poems span a diverse range of Moore’s experience, from his time in the Canadian military and on humanitarian work projects in Haiti, to travelling the storied avenues of Oxford University and working with young offenders on the hardscrabble streets of Moncton.
Shatter the Glass, Shards of Flame will be available in bookstores October 15, 2018.
