Friend Poems is a collection of intimate texts, edited by Casey Wei, with contributions by Colin Osler, Kay Higgins, Tiziana La Melia, and Steffanie Ling.
Realized throughout the pandemic, Friend Poems addresses long-running thoughts, recurring dreams, and secret epiphanies. This volume is the 27th release by Vancouver-based record label and art publisher Agony Klub, and its first collection of poetry. The book features contributions by five Vancouver-based artist-writers responding to the prompt: “a poem written to a friend, with friends in mind, as an act of trust.” Each contribution works through its own methodology and desire while rippling kismet throughout one another.
Co-published by Publication Studio Vancouver and Agony Klub.
