“Corsets can be
Tight-Lacing is an excerpt from a larger project of the same name.

The corsets are rendered in letters, making them into visual poems, and the ad copy is scrambled to create a new poetic text.
This chapbook was originally created for the filling Station magazine Blow-Out festival in Calgary in July 2009.
