Under God's Pale Bones

by David Groulx

David Groulx’s Under God’s Pale Bones traces back 500 years through the drumbeat, through a history of genocide. Groulx's poems rumble through night skies, speaking of ink and blood as they split the darkness, calling on spiritual strength and ancestral medicine. These poems hunger for freedom, pose questions, and give voice to dreams and nightmares alike. Groulx’s spirited poetics lament and love, singing stony earth-songs under sleepless skies. In this powerful collection, David Groulx dances you in a circle towards a new morning, burning. – Karl Jirgens, Editor Rampike magazine.

David Groulx was raised in the Northern Ontario mining community of Elliot Lake. He is proud of his Native roots – his mother is Ojibwe Indian and his father is French Canadian.
