Traces of Blue


TRACES OF BLUE is a collection of poetry that explores a lingering and melancholic heartbreak through metaphor-rich, raw, unstructured poetry. This work by Stéphane-Robert attempts to process, and put to rest thoughts on heartbreak, betrayal, and closeted lovers.

“In Traces, I explore the experience of dating someone who’s still closeted in a small town… it’s something we don’t read much about. […] I had some pushback from folks who reviewed my works, and that’s why I wanted to self-publish – so these stories can be told – unedited” – As told to Radio-Canada, January 2021
