Description

I keep your bones in the living room
I gave half to your mother
I wanted to keep them for myself
but I did the right thing
split them down the middle

Erika Lutzner  performs the transmutation we long for when we confront a bone-deep loss, peeling open dreams and memories with the poet’s ruthless, yet generous intensity to create this spare and luminous homage to a husband lost in the World Trade Center.
