it was amazing

This is essential reading for anyone over the age of 35 — and/or for anyone who has grappled with true loss, had his/her face rubbed in mortality, or lost sleep/weight/friends over the question of cap-W why. These poems are urgent; they are precise and beautiful in their wrestling with the multilayered mess of existing.

"...I think
to be useless doesn't have to mean
not somehow mattering...
"

Chances are, I'm going to carry this book in my bag for the next few months.
