Exposing and reworking the dark corners of past traumas.

Gigglepuss delves into a past pock marked with loss, broken family dynamics, and the looming shadow of familial mental illness. These poems touch on sexual abuse, lost relationships, the influence of pop culture, and the intensity of motherhood set against the at times humorous backdrop of stark self-awareness, irony and even absurdity. Bucking against a patriarchal society, this collection is a provocative, reflective and at times confrontational portrayal of our human need for connection, self-identity and home.

Carlie Blume was born on the unceded and ancestral lands of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh (Vancouver). She is a 2017 graduate of Simon Fraser University’s The Writer’s Studio and her work has appeared in The Maynard, Train: a poetry journal, Ghost City Review and more. She currently lives on Salt Spring Island, B.C with her husband and two children.
