About this item

"Scott is a cosmoglot of the throat's ravine, and this is his manic, pandemonic article of faith." Andrew Zawacki

Night & Ox is a long poem working its interruptions to a degree where it's broken by the will to live. A poem that invokes expansive loneliness, where the poet's emotional response is to endure. A crushed line of astral forms and anatomy in entropy; it is a poem that nurtures vulnerability: some soft-footed embryo sounds against fatherhood and language's viscera.Night & Ox possesses a feral minimalism for those too tired and too frantic with joy to cope with narrative.

Jordan Scott is the author of Silt (2005, nominated for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize),blert (2008) and, with Stephen Collis, Decomp (2013). Scott is the 2015/16 Writer-in-Residence at Simon Fraser University. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
