A Work No One Told You About
ove that is a June evening rolling itself out in defeat. Love that is plowing the tops of its thighs through thick grasses. What is the mourning period? Can we locate the pain of separation? The poems in A Work No One Told You About work to generate a structure for grief as it is lived—between the crushing and slow weight of loss, and the laughable constancy of the everyday.
Olivia Wood lives in Montreal, where she currently edits the poetry section of The Void Magazine. A Work No One Told You About is her first collection of poetry.
