How to Hold a Heart

How to Hold a Heart

I wrote "How to Hold a Heart" in the winter of 2016 after reading a small piece in the NYT's Sunday Magazine by the same title. I was struck by the idea of what happens when the heart transplant patient is between hearts. In this poem, I worked to balance the clinic with the emotional. It ran in the spring issue of Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review and was my first published poem!
