These words of grief poured out of me like water. the first six months of Jacob’s death all I could do was write and write and write… and I wasn’t the poet, he was. Little did I know this book would change my life forever and in ways almost through magical realism.

Within the backdrop of the American South, Bloom’s debut book of poetry deals with the first six months of loss. Bloom writes about grief, love, depression, mania, and making sense of the ills of all this living.
