ABOUT FOR THE END COMES REACHING
This is a meditation on the ineffable sense of loss that accompanies each having.
Through the death of his father, a son apprehends other deaths and finds each manifestation inevitable, yet enclosed with possibility; violence bears love and is borne of it, guilt seeds redemption, and faith is found within apostasy. What emerges from For the End Comes Reaching are poems that bear witness to the alchemy of human experience.
