Incomplete Works Elizabeth Benson-Udom read online review & book description:

This collection of 64 poems represents (for me) a quiet tribute to the miracles my father made possible with each one of his short 64 years on this earth. This boy that became a man that became my Dad changed everything for me when he died earlier this year. From him, i learn not to wait. i learn to trust my instincts. i learn to take matters into my own hands. i learn to live outside the rules. i learn that life ends. i learn that there is no point putting anything that matters off until tomorrow. The poetry included in this collection reflects much of what i've learned--there are recollections of my father, words that helped me negotiate his dying and my grief, stories from the road about beautiful places we've visited on this extraordinary earth. Sewn throughout all of these is a kind of honor for the ordinary day, the regular joys particular to happily married mothers, a kind of suburban exaltation of home, and a profound gratitude to the divine for all of it.
