#travelsend: poems @ travel's end
Acclaimed poet Darryl Whetter has recorded a series of trips to Southeast Asia and Australia in a poem cycle that is trenchant, funny, touching, and self-revealing.
Travel is inseparable from storytelling, although travel, these pressing poems worry, may contribute more to the climate crisis than it solves. Wry, loving, and witty. these poems offer one journey after another.
Whetter’s poems are arresting, genuine, full of science and wonder.

— Alistair MacLeod, author of Never Die Wondering
[H]e can pin down his insights with wonderful precision [ranging] from dispassionate perception to an abrupt and moving burst of emotional truth.
