Urban Burlesque Cover for website.jpg

Announcing Urban Burlesque, a brand-new book of poems available in May 2023! Dealing with the state of everyday living in the 2020s.

from Urban Burlesque:

A frown is a smile

standing on its head.

Feet are a pair of hands

unwilling to clasp in prayer.

Toes are cognisant

that fingers are more lovely—

so they never stretch for the sky.

 

Unable to offer light of its own,

the moon is but a mirror for the sun

in which to worship its own reflection.

What is ugly, anyway?

Is it the absence of beauty

or too much of it all at once?

from the poem, Incongruity

Available from the Books page

"This is the most refreshing book of poetry I have read to date.   The expressive style is exactly perfect for the insecure and rather harsh times we now inhabit ...  you have done this brilliantly in fixing moments that are often horrid, vivid and memory-brutal but nonetheless so true. Truth is the key word of this remarkable book ... it speaks to us in a way that earlier poetry never did, it does not coat the moment in platitudes but bares it in our shared and uncertain humanity.

 

---Katherine L. Gordon, poet and author 

"I've been browsing through the poems with immense pleasure. Your wry take on our everyday, ordinary doings is sharp and engaging. Your understated wit brought a smile and the shock of recognition. You illuminate the quotidian."

 

---Don Gutteridge, poet and author 

"In his new collection, Urban Burlesque, Andreas Gripp is a master of cadence, transforming the daily prosaic into poetry."

 

---Penn Kemp, poet and author, inaugural London Poet Laureate 

"Edgy, muscular and musical, with a nice dash of the absurd. Some of my favourite poems were

Poetasters, Dedication, Methocarbomal 1500mg, Patrick 50 years later, Horticulture, Early Birds, and Victor. Great work!"

---Mike Madill, poet and author 

"Your poems are so full of life ... fun to read!"

 

---Anna Yin, poet and author, former Mississauga Poet Laureate
