FIREFLIES is a collection of lyric poems—formal and informal— that seek solace in nature and memory for the heartache of being human. From children chasing fireflies at night to middle agers chasing lost loves at three in the morning, they trace the compromises we make to make it—the dead mice, cats, fetuses, and loves left in our wakes. And they celebrate the tenuous survival of trees, love, and innocence.
