About the Book

Cooley’s poems are sharp in all the places it can hurt and soft in ways that comfort an aching soul. Layers of joy, pain, bliss, frustration—no emotion is off limits as these sensual yet valiant poems dig their heels and hold on for dear life as winds of uncertainty threaten to overcome.

About the Book

Gritty and unfeigned accounts of the vulnerabilities and strifes endured in a life-long, committed relationship.
