The Landscape We Left on Each Other
At once familiar and foreign, intimate and distant, this collection of poems by Lauren Elle DeGaine follows the ebb and flow of a romantic relationship full of quiet, tender moments and sudden, frightening conflict. DeGaine employs recurring images, feelings, and impressions to reveal the spiraling circuits we all travel with those we hold most dear. The Landscape We Left on Each Other explores the poetics of love, loss, trajectory, and intersection; “the tear — an ache — not an explanation.” A limited edition of 40 chapbooks have been produced, each bound in hand-made, sage green paper, available now from The Blasted Tree Store.
