Aisha Sasha John's THOU re-plays that archaic pronoun as a constantly present movement and rhythm of attention: moments. These lines of poetry "shakeï??a little" as the "I" narrates and choreographs a monologue of the self in motion; each page is the dance floor and John's words break through the "I-as-you" with anticipation and grace.
- Fred Wah
THOU is physical, fearless in its vulnerabilities, a sensing amid thought's most succulent folds. THOU is a choreography of irresolute bodies, the insistent shifting of their positions. Aisha Sasha John is a poet of centrifugal energy, of reverberant intimacy.
- Michael Nardone
John is brilliant at communicating. She's also really funny. Poems don't get more direct and precise and unforgettable than this.
-The National Post
"...a truly beautiful book and a rare gift..."
- Broken Pencil
To read this book is to experience the poem happening to you - and to want in.
