Poems in Maleea Acker's second collection range over continents and countries, asking an essential question for our time: How do we live in the world? The poems seek always to approach that threshold between human and natural worlds, attending to what can be seen and sensed with a fine ear and eye. We meet one another at the threshold, through a "splice of intimacy," displaced, the poet says, finding temporary homes and intimacies with one another and with all living things.

Maleea Acker holds an MFA in Writing from the University of Victoria. She has received writing fellowships from the Spring Creek Project (Oregon State University), Blue Mountain Center (New York), Fundación Valparaíso, Centre d'art i Natura (Spain), The Banff Centre (Canada and Mexico) and St. Peter's College (Saskatchewan). She works as a writing instructor and is native to Vancouver island.

"Reading Maleea Acker's first collection, The Relecting Pool, packaged in a beautiful, textured volume, is a dreamy journey into image and metaphor: we follow a saturated path, where "[c]rickets trill, stars perambulate, valley falls into itself," past cobwebs and birds, a church at noon, to where "ferns, moss, a bundle / of roots inched tthemselves into the built through a lens." - The Malahat Review 172
