Rhona McAdam is a poet, holistic nutritionist, and food writer living in Victoria. Her books include Cartography and Ex-Ville, both poetry, and Digging the City, an urban agriculture manifesto.
Rhona’s new collection, Larder, from Caitlin Press, includes poems on bees, bugs, and lots of food. In her 7th poetry collection, Rhona navigates the dark places of human movement through the earth and the exquisite intricacies lingering in backyard gardens and farmlands populated by insects and pollinators, all the while returning to the body, to the tune of staccato beats and the newly discovered symmetries within the human heart.
Poetic Appetizer
Earth called me to its table
and I became its fork, its knife, its
roundest spoon.
(from Tasting Dirt)
