Poetry. Relying on youthful sincerity rather than nostalgic rumination, this 2005 Verse Prize winner is sweet, sharp, and honest. Energetic interlinked poems describe the daily and sometimes surprisingly routine nature of sorrow, as a series of short lyric bursts give form to a story of loss, sadness, and recovery.
