Inheriting Weight continues the true story of David A. Kates, who, after losing his beloved mother to cancer, picks up life's pieces and starts fresh. David is inspired by all that he has inherited--physical, emotional, and spiritual gifts. The poems are distinctly influenced by images of nature, multi-genre music, global travel, and relationships with friends and family. It is a memoir of fervent renewal after tremendous loss.
