Loss (Psychology) -- Fiction, Belief and doubt -- Fiction
Real Witness is a collection of poems exploring responses to loss--loss of youth, of health, of an envisioned future--particularly when loss challenges faith or foundational beliefs, or when responses seem at odds with one's beliefs. Poems push against pat or prescribed responses and look for more honest alternatives.
