Returning: A Poetry Feature
Poetry Editor's Note: The poets featured in this section are masters at the return, at going back and taking a hard look, at remembering a place or a photograph or a moment etched on the edge of memory. These featured poets are actively engaged in chasing after authentic meanings of place, family, dream. Some of these poems are specifically about returning home, while other poems capture a recurring scene or a memory. Here are eight poets on the art and heartbreak, the joy and humor and desolation of the return. Click the writers below to read each poem.
