Up-and-coming poet Jamie Sharpe presents a finely tuned second collection
Cut-up Apologetic, Sharpe’s second collection, explores aging in a world where youth is terrible and something we desperately want back. These are poems about failing to leave our mark while marks are left on us — about the collective insatiability of emptying surroundings in an attempt to fill ourselves.
At the same time, is naïve and playful even when examining fear expressed as discrimination or the ways restlessness transitions into an inertia spelling cultural death. Sharpe finds strange new horizons “extend(ing)/only backward, into memory.”
"Cut-up Apologetic is a twisted look at today’s world, very enjoyable and recommended." — Evil Cyclist
"Sharpe’s poetry is poignant and fresh, holding a magnifying glass freely to Corporate North America and to himself.” — Jaffalogue
