Both chronicle and confrontation, the poems of Jacob Scheier's debut work out and through notions of loss. As the death of a young man's mother instigates and informs these investigations, the realities of romantic failures become inextricably connected, and in the process More to Keep Us Warm maps the limitations, and breaking points, of the human heart. Questioning how and why we fall in and out of love becomes the collection's haunting refrain.
At the same time, Scheier's poems mourn the absence of both religious and cultural identity. Facing the painful and confusing losses of his life, the support of the only "tradition" the writer knows - an atheist, socialist upbringing - proves unsatisfying. In response, More to Keep Us Warm explores the formation of a new, complex sense of self as inherited belief systems fail. With humour, sardonic wit, and conversational charm, this search engages and struggles with Judeo-Christian tradition to become an intimate meditation on the nature of God in a secular world.
A challenging exploration of mental illness and disability from Governor General's Award winner Jacob Scheier.
Is This Scary? digs deep into internal landscapes of suffering, including depression and anxiety, chronic physical ailment, and rare neurological malady. With its many eccentric songs and odes to medications and medical procedures, this book is full of both levity and unapologetic lament. Pushing back against societal stigma, Is This Scary? unflinchingly addresses experiences of psychiatric institutionalization and suicidality, without either romanticizing or pathologizing them. Scheier rejects much of the mainstream cultural views of mental illness, subverting the biochemical model by emphasizing the radical subjectivity of mental suffering. While the poems render the difficulty of communicating pain to others, they defiantly celebrate its expression and evocation through visceral lyricism.
Scheier also challenges our culture's desire to be inspired by stories of "triumphing" over illness and disability. Nothing is overcome here, the journey from illness to wellness is one of narrative and aesthetic disruption. The perpetually incomplete search for self and home is ultimately at the heart of this book: along with being a person with disabilities, the poet-speaker identifies as a Diaspora-Jew, engaging exile as a chronic state of being that isn't intended to be resolved, but rather explored, expressed, and honored.
Ode to Prednisone
Herr Pill! You murder sleep.
Eugenicist Cortisol, re-make me-
ox-strong, moon-faced, onioned-skin.
Hugs are dangerous.
Performance-enhancing drug for poets-
you triple feelings. Elegies for the late train & spilled milk.
Anxiety is Everything.
Threatened by the light that brightens the dark.
Dread tolerates Ativan.
Faustian Chemical, you resurrect myths
like Lazarus. He was never the same.
I've been to that shore the dead clamour for.
An original approach to trend discovery and trade entry Initial forays into day trading stock index futures reveal a starkly different decision environment. There is no time to dwell on technical conditions. Intraday volatility in the stock indices is far more exaggerated than the daily bar charts of other markets, partly due to the extreme leverage, partly due to the intense attention.

Le troisième millénaire (ils le disaient) devait leur apporter une résurrection Mince de conversion. Les grains de leurs chapelets ressemblaient à des balles dum-dum. D'ailleurs, ils ne laissaient à personne le temps d'achever un pater. S'ils portaient des masques blancs, c'était pas pour se planquer, mais pour se faire voir. La bonne ville de Lyon venait d'hériter de drôles de paroissiens ! Le commissaire Paul Millet et ses poulets se sentaient désarmés devant ces malfrats semant la panique sans semer de traces. Leurs clients ne frayaient pas avec le mitan traditionnel. Les flics se creusaient le pif, les indics se cassaient le nez, parce que l'ouvrage fini ils redevenaient des mecs comme les autres. Avec ça qu'ils ne fréquentaient pas trop le confessionnal. Alors où les loger ? Richard, reporter photographe, le frère de Paul Millet, en fit les frais sanglants, le huit décembre, au soir de la journée d'actions de grâces à la Vierge Marie. En guise de goupillons ils maniaient des battes de base bail, les gugus. Richard fit une prière pour se les farcir. « Seulement une fois, mon Dieu ». Elle fut exaucée. Il les retrouva... mais sous d'autres cieux.
