In apertures, the second book of poet rob mclennan's “the other side of the mouth” (the first appeared in limited edition through BookThug in 2003), he writes a variation on Vancouver writer George Bowering's Curious (Toronto ON: Coach House Press, 1974), a collection of poems composed for and about other poets. In apertures, mclennan composed pieces about the possessions of a variety of poets he has known, whether personally or only through their writings, over the past decade and a half. In eighty-four poems, mclennan writes the “stuff” of a list of both American and Canadian poets, riffing through each writer's individual language, resulting in a portrait of North American writing through the eyes of one of Canada's most active poet/critics.
