I‘m beyond lucky to live in a town which has a James Turrell installation, and I brought along my copy of Kevin Young‘s tremendous new anthology of elegiac poems.

The_Penniless_Author Very cool. Turrell had an exhibition in Pittsburgh about 20 years ago, when I still lived there, at a gallery called The Mattress Factory. I love his stuff! 2y
plemmdog @The_Penniless_Author he‘s the best. I just googled and saw that the crater he bought is planned to open to the public in 2024! 2y

We used this book for a class I took on pastoral care. It was amazing and a wonderful resource for those dealing with grief. Kevin Young is amazing poet with great vision.

One of my favorite anthologies. The poems are put into different categories: Reckoning, Regret, Remembrance, Ritual, Recovery, and Redemption. To quote the editor, Kevin Young, this is a "poetry of necessity." These truly are poems of grief and healing. #poetry
