In These Hollowed Bones, birds are the conduit for conversations of internal emotions and the natural world. This collection ties together the themes of loss, marriage, and ecology, topics that are at once personal and universal. The voices contained within these poems speak of the isolation felt by both avian and human due to migration and loss of habitat, loss of home. Nature and bird lovers will find solace and self-recognition within these pages.

'A collection the reader can come home to again and again, in any season.'

—Brittney Corrigan, author of Solastalgia


'Flighted on hope and feathers. Wonderment unfolds effortlessly on the page with the poet's sprawling knowledge dovetailed perfectly with an artist's eye.'

—Jessica Mehta, author of Constellations of My Body
