The delights and conflicts of a loving marriage are revealed as the poet’s husband is diagnosed with cancer and dies, all within months. Yet the present moment—birds at the feeder, creatures wild and domestic, dancing with her husband in the kitchen, and arguing hilariously about the afterlife—shimmers with life.
