Loss is something we often try to forget, or at the very least, something that we keep deeply private. I began this chapbook with a very specific idea of loss; I wanted to base my poetry on people who had disappeared without a trace. I imagined what could have happened to them. I also wanted to give them the homecomings they deserved. Soon after beginning, I realized that I needed to broaden the theme of loss to include more of a spectrum, from great to small, from personal to abstract, while still allowing room for my own imagination. In this way, I found the freedom to explore the theme of loss in a few different forms with a variety of poems and subjects.
