"Burns: When Anger Comes Home" carves a landscape painting of anger within 27 poems. At midnight, a girl meets the fuel, the flame and the ashes of a burning home to capture the ghosts of anger. An exploration of grief, heartache and self-acceptance. What can we save? What can we forgive?
"Home is on fire. War-Girl observes its ember jacket. Orange swallows midnight. She overhears the fire department, 'What caused the fire?'
Folding up each hand, she exhales a warm breath. Out into the ice-ridden air she steps."

*pdf includes illustrations by me!
