Love Learned

As the title suggests, many of the poems in Love Learned have love as a principal subject: familial love, romantic love, or the elegiac celebration of love lost. The poems in the third part, called “Iterates,” are structured by ritualized repetitions and are designed for recitation or at least to be read as if heard. Most of the poems in the collection are informed by psychoanalytic insights and have been influenced, directly or indirectly, by their author’s psychotherapy practice.
