Almost Everything, Almost Nothing
A balm for busy and troubling times, Almost Everything, Almost Nothing immerses the reader in the tapestry and territory of the lyric landscape. Whether current events or personal relationships, we can see humanity both blossom and suffer at its own hands in these poems. Love, loss, and absence spark moments of reflection and connection between the poet's narrative and our own.
