The Mood Embosser, Louis Cabri's first book of poetry, presents a series of impressions of 1990s social history as it is manifested in the lingering traces of everyday life. In order to address a wide variety of social structures and their attendant moods, these poems deploy a clutch of poetic forms: columns, long poems, the page as a 'field' of interrelated micro-poems, and series all jostle for space between the covers.
In The Mood Embosser, Louis Cabri writes toward chance's margin â€“ the home of the things we don't know â€“ with a pointed humour that pokes and prods among the detritus of culture.
