Set at the crossroads of middle age, this book investigates love and family—both the families we are born into and those we create for ourselves. Funny, cinematic, and inventive, the poems recount family lore side by side with the perplexities of contemporary romance. They are charged with the recent national legalization of same-sex marriage and show us that marriage and family are a learned project, one passed down, to be attempted by each new generation as best it can. He finally casts his gaze to future possibility: what we would be, would do, if we could. Buy this book from our affiliate Bookshop.org.
