Like a Trophy from the Sun

Like a Trophy from the Sun

By Jason Heroux

Blending the everyday with the unexpected, Like a Trophy From the Sun is a book of poetic tableaus stirred, whipped and beaten together. Its ingredients include surreal dreamscapes, a pinch of gallows humour, and a wistful nostalgia for the here and now, along with the cracked shells of fragmented blessings. These untitled prose poems attempt to contemplate and articulate the extraordinary world we sleep through, dream in, and wake up to. A world of ghost towns, wrong numbers, eight-legged light bulbs, and broken sunsets, where “even dead leaves look and sound leaf-like if there’s enough wind.” The manuscript highlights the joy and bafflement of living in our bewildered mixed-up world.
