Because What Else Could I Do, a sequence of fifty-five untitled short poems, almost all of them addressed to my husband following his unexpected death in 2016.

I will be teaching a week-long workshop this summer from June 23-29 in Chautauqua, New York. See the Events page of this website for information.
