Women vanish, ghosts appear, demons slip through our lives, the universe aches, and violence is everywhere. In these poems, Clark asks: what are the unvanishing objects of the lives around us? From overheard conversations to detectives remembering past cases to relationships that have faded away, the poems always cycle back to both what we’ve lost and what we can’t imagine losing.
