tracery & interplay
(Frog Hollow Press: Victoria, BC, 2004)
tracery & interplay features linked poems about hockey by matt robinson, a young poet from the Maritimes. matt has spent his life playing hockey, from the pre-school street games to his first foray onto ice when he was in Grade Three. By the time he tended goal, substituting for the team goalie who trooped off to Florida for March break, matt was hooked. This passion for the game has lasted through high school and university, where he played intramural ice hockey at both Saint Mary’s University in Halifax and the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. This passion for hockey shows through in every line of the poems contained in tracery & interplay.
