Gone Walking and Other Departures

Gone Walking and Other Departures

Gone Walking and Other Departures by Natalli Amato is a rumination on impermanence and the grief that comes with this truth. The poems grapple with losses big and small, creating holding-space for each. These 19 poems are rooted in dreamscapes and the natural world alike, where moonbeams, Adirondack skies, and descending fog mingle with spirit.
