Overview

Following the story of a marriage come undone, this moving book-length sequence is broken down into four seasons, distilling the details of the failed relationship through physical processes of nature, such as the buzzing life of wildflowers and birds that the speaker—a wife and mother—studies daily for clues on happiness. Intricately constructed and brimming with resourceful linguistic play, these poems are elemental odes on the end of love and its eventual renewal.
