"Part manifesto, part memoir, This wound is a world is an invitation to 'cut a hole in the sky to world inside.' Billy-Ray Belcourt issues a call to turn to love and sex to understand how Indigenous peoples shoulder sadness and pain like theirs without giving up on the future. His poems and essays upset genre and play with form, scavenging for a decolonial kind of heaven where 'everyone is at least a little gay'"-- Provided by publisher.

Easy to see why this won a CBC contest, but still just ordinary poetry. (Poorly bound, pages 19/20, 57/58 and 59/60 are falling out already.)
