These poems deal with memory, passion, loss, longing, and with relationships—some broken, some splendidly evolving. Populated with characters we wish we knew actually, Shelnutt’s poems engage the mind and the heart. As her characters experience fresh understanding and crucial informative moments, we too evolve and become more deeply human.
