“So much of what we understand
is a parenthesis: open, unfinished.”
Praise for The Caretaker's Lament:
“Her work is rich with such knowledge--of history, of family, of loss--a fearless knowledge that refuses to turn away."
“Written with great delicacy, these poems speak of family life and careful observed loss."
“The scenes and portraits that comprise the moving, deeply felt, and humane poems of The Caretaker's Lament do the astonishing thing of holding joy and sorrow in the same visionary moment."
