This is the conclusion to a year of wondering, a year of wandering, a year of heart wrenching angst, of discovery, of wrongheadedness, of getting-it-wrong, of seeing too much, of learning too little, of giant leaps of uncertainty, of smaller ones that led to beginnings, of shifts, of hopes, of loss, of grieving, of distance, of closeness, of movement, of change. ‘The Years Between Us’ is a collected roundup of my best poems, from the Year of the Poem (2019). More for those who want to hear more, in the circles, papers, and life.
