House of Matches
by Ro Artland

In House of Matches (2024) the poet fashions and gives life to diverse voices of refugees, immigrants, exiles, as well as victims of war, human trafficking, and pandemic. Collectively, in their stories of struggles, losses, and triumphs, the voices evoke the dramatically intense world of our decade — a world compared in the title poem to a “house of matches”.

Ro Artland is a Canadian poet, writer, and artist whose artistic vision draws energy from the realm of the mythopoetic imagination. Being an accomplished poet with publications in Canadian and US magazines and anthologies, Ro Artland illustrates her poetry with her own artworks that exhibit the search for human connection and compassion.
