Poetry|Modern and contemporary poetry (c 1900 onwards)
Toronto
In Pronounced/Workable many of the poems draw from pre-hospital care medical protocols, standards and legislative acts as well as colloquial quotes of patients, literary reference, graffiti, signage and other texts. It hopes to mimic the fast paced collage and varied tonality that a 12 hour shift in the city produces. Food, opportunistic creatures, tragedy and apathy are recurring themes, as well as many Toronto-specific landmarks. Some later poems reflect on the medicalization of the poets own female body through the use of personal medical reports as source texts.

Candace de Taeye has had poetry most recently published in Arc, BAD NUDES, CNQ, CV2, Grain, Joypuke, Meat for Tea and Vallum. She has chapbooks titled Roe from PSGuelph and The Ambulance Act from Frog Hollow Press. During the day and more often at night she works as a paramedic in Toronto's downtown core. She lives in Guelph with her husband, two young sons, two dogs, 3 cats, 4 elderly tree frogs and a very large tortoise.
