A young boy grows up in a small steel town along the Ohio River between 1963 and 1968, while another boy’s suicide overshadows the community. These poems tell their story.
“Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.” —Matthew 10:31
“To know what it feels like
to be suspended between a steel town
and a steel blue sky, I climb.
Perched on the gallows’ branch,
I reach out, touching the remains
of the frayed knot
woven into an abandoned bird’s nest.”
