Book Cover of my ty mama by Mercedes Eng

In the follow-up to her BC Book Prize-winning book of poetry, Prison Industrial Complex Explodes, Mercedes Eng continues her poetic investigation of racism and colonialism in Canada, weaponizing the language of the nation-state against itself in the service of social justice. my yt mama is a collection of poems that considers historic and contemporary colonial violence in the Canadian prairies, settler geography and state of mind that irrevocably shaped Eng’s understanding of race as a person of colour born and raised in Treaty 7 Territory in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
