Summary

Purple Haze purports to describe "nondescript days" but that's just a poetic haze that subtly brings the reader to this poetry's real clarity, which is its ability to pose questions. These poems situate the "I/You" of the lyric's spoken voice in a passionate, sometimes erotic, interrogation of imagination and feeling that is looking for answers. The echo is palpable while Candice James sings "'Scuze me" while I write these poems. ~ Fred Wah, Canadian Parliamentary Poet Laureate 2011-2013 and Officer of The Order of Canada.
