Mondays, Calls from your Mother, and All the Things We’ve Lost is a product of a period of intense loss. This thirty-one-poem collection is an accumulation of grieving over the loss of my close friend, Earle Kelly, in November of 2019, grieving over the loss of a childhood and the way I viewed my parents as figures of stability and unconditional love, and grieving over relationship losses-- all amongst the confusing nature of one’s own budding sexuality. The thesis works to make sense of the confusing and conflicting feelings that come with loss.
