The Ninetieth Day: Poems about Love, Loss, & Leftovers for Breakfast is a collection of poetry that seeks to explore the everyday moments and musings in life that linger between love and loss, and more importantly, those that are forgotten as soon as they pass (in other words, leftovers for breakfast). Such moments include: waking up to sparkles of sunlight; finding a way to persist when life is not as ordinary as you'd like it to be; a frozen-in-time elevator ride to visit a loved one in the hospital; and more.
