Bad Habits is a new collection of poems by Fraser Sutherland, a self-described curmudgeon and contrarian, realist and first and foremost — a counterpuncher. Sutherland writes: “Poetry can’t de-feat ongoing ignorance, repetitive wrong-doing, physical deterioration nor persona extinction. But to say a few meaningful words about being in the world in the face of infinity and eternity – well, that’s something.”
