Blazing Space is a long poem begun as an ‘atmospheric river’ hit the Pacific coast of Canada, causing floods and landslides from mountain soils already depleted by summer forest fires. The same week the storm arrived, in November 2021, poets Phyllis Webb, Etel Adnan, and Lee Maracle all passed away. Blazing Space is written in the wake of these disasters, from an office lined with books that had belonged to poet Robin Blaser, from whose marginalia the poem takes instruction.
