From the "whittled towns" towns of Saskatchewan to the song of the "red-breasted delivery truck," Bren Simmers uses her unique ability to draw connections between rural and urban, between the divine and the absurd, to create dazzling poetry. In Night Gears Simmers'' first collection, her lines demand the reader''s attention, whether she is cataloguing roadkill on a trip to the arctic, revelling in the intensity of a thunderstorm at a fire lookout, or unfolding the silent pain of small-town life.
