    Review by Jenn Cole:

    You Are Enough: Love Poems for the End of the World, Smokii Sumac’s debut poetry collection, is a place to rest awhile and find honest expressions of hope, grief, rage and falling in love. In You are Enough, the specificity of daily life in Michi Saagig territory (coffee and the Odenabe) moves alongside broader Indigenous experiences and knowledges, respecting diversity at all times.

    The poet reveals himself to us through detailed impressions about what makes up a home, trans/2S sexuality and consent, and the difficulty of overcoming alcoholism -- all with staggering generosity. The openness with which Sumac invites us into his world provokes reciprocal openness in the reader. Even as he focuses our gaze on the Coulten Boushie and Tina Fontaine trials, Standing Rock, Orlando, Trudeau and the RCMP, Sumac brings in supports. Many relatives show their faces -- Grandmother Moon, Father Sky, the four sacred medicines. There is heart work to be done here, if the reader is willing.

    (I learned of this poet and book through the Poetry London Facebook reading. My copy arrived free of charge.) This is a wonderful book by an amazing poet. Aside from the politics, the writing is superb. Aside from the writing, the politics are clear and current. I hope that Smokii finishes his PhD and continues to write poetry.
