Gloria Barkley launches her new poetry collection Water Window Mirror on October 26, 1 to 3 p.m. at the New Westminster Art Gallery in Queens Park.  These beautifully sculpted poems take us along with Gloria through apparent mental illness through to a new, food additive- and hallucination-free life.

“These poems disturb and delight with their synesthetic surprise; quietly remind that the writing of a well-crafted little poem requires a long, arduous journey. Imagists’ poetry and Neruda’s Book of Questions come to mind. Thought provoking and invigorating, Barkley moves beyond arresting metaphor to visceral conflation. The sheer physicality, brutality, ironic beauty of Barkley’s language is her own.” – Betsy Warland, Breathing the Page– Reading the Act of Writing.
