About the book
“This is a book of poems— more than a literary exercise—a document, testament, memorial for someone I met when I was 13 years old, and knew my entire life. Ken Flynn and I were married almost 60 years when he left me.
Each poem is a note in a diary of loss. The words ‘dead’ and ‘death’ appear more than I would otherwise allow in my writing but honest emotions called these poems forth. In fact I have forgiven myself for many things so that I can make my feelings permanent.”
