Angela Carr is the author of Ropewalk (2006) and, more recently, the Rose Concordance (2009), which masquerades as a translation of the keyword index to a medieval French allegory. She has published in Canada and internationally, and her poetry has been translated into French and Slovene. Angela Carr is based in Montreal, where she makes her living as a translator of history.

“The anarchy of the fountain is an absence of water Instead buffeting violet light on the downward arc from a splendidly perched upper basin

The upper basin is important, not unlike colour, to any notion of the authentic The upper basin is intrinsic yet supplemental, a bird’s perch, an unattainable accessory both toweringly majestic and superfluous like a figure head whose style is a belated container a raised basin for grey areas”

-- from “Sleep Water”
