About the Author

Beatriz Hausner’s poetry is rooted in the legacy of international surrealism, especially its Spanish American expression.

Hausner’s work has been anthologized and published in journals both in Canada and internationally, in French, Spanish and Portuguese translation. Recent publications of her poetry include: The Wardrobe Mistress (2003),Towards the Ideal Man Poems (2003), The Stitched Heart(2004), The Archival Stone (2005) and Sew Him Up, which appeared in April 2010.

Read an Excerpt

In the Beginning
In the beginning
was cat usher of
a new age of doors
that curl at the corners
gadgets for loving on
complicated furniture
collapsing into
pillows and sheets.
His legs preceded him
they turned on wireless
fingertips looked inside
the eyes of first cat as
he struggled with
beasts large and small
barking at our union.
The room was cleansed
of ghosts and dependents.
Everyone welcomed his claws
the ones he used to etch
my name deep into the walls.
Thus was an alphabet of
foreign tongues conceived
the better to decipher
the purring of ideal man.
