Poetry. Winner of the 2014 Cider Press Review Book Award. Book award judge Jeffrey Harrison says of STEEL: Two tragic events haunt this powerful first collection-the early loss of the poet's mother and her brother's death-the kind of events that 'change the alignment / of every season after' and tear open vast absences in a life.
