A poetry collection by Souvankham Thammavongsa.

Souvankham Thammavongsa

Acclaimed poet Souvankham Thammavongsa returns with her fourth collection, a book about meaning. Meaning can sometimes blow up, crack something we had not seen, or darken what had been seen so clear to us. Meaning can happen with so little and go on to take so much from us.

Meaning can sometimes take a long time to arrive, years even, if ever. And it's possible meaning does not mean, and that in itself could be meaningful. Whatever happens to meaning, it is always there. It means even when you don't want it. Every poem in this book looks at meaning and the ways in which it arrives, if at all. (From McClelland & Stewart)

From the book

An announcement is coming this afternoon

Something about targeted closings, forecasts,

assuming of sales, royalty revenues, gross proceeds,

multiple metrics, range of approximation, land

holdings, future spending, and commitments.

Watch how rank can be stronger than peers. More

details will be provided at the closing of this transaction.

Defer any major decisions. Resume spending and

expansion. Deploy capital to improve physical

integration. Main concerns are related to potential use

of proceeds. Return to historical capital, ongoing

internal changes. There is an implied discount.

Proceeds and recommendation remain unchanged.

Continue to rank. Repeat. Buy. Press Release.
