About the Book

Written in the seven years following the death of the author s infant son, these poems explore the sometimes quiet and often startling nature of love and grief. Through a range of forms and panoply of figures spiders, fish, a famous cellist, and prophetic apparitions this collection probes what William Faulkner called, "the human heart in conflict with itself".
