Every morning for the first 21 days of the locked-down and uncertain month of December 2020, Sue Goyette wrote a new poem to be published in Halifax’s The Coast that afternoon. Goyette’s skilful use of poetry’s artful unruliness—of its facility for reconciling our emotional and imaginative lives with occurrences in the everyday world—results in poems that illuminate a dark moment, contributing to “the work of imagining a way forward so there’s a bowl for everyone.”
