The collection deals with life. It’s a reflection on pain, on people, and on events. It’s Moore's experience of being a soldier in the Canadian Armed Forces, providing humanitarian aid in Haiti, and working with young offenders on the fierce streets of Moncton, New Brunswick. Gritty, amusing, and inspiring, these poems are vulnerable and leave everything on the page.
