Loneliness and loss are the subjects of Michael B. Zack's poetry. They exist in a landscape of beautiful colors, exotic locales, and all the hugeness of nature that can make us feel so small. Michael reminds us of the losses that we push to the back of our consciousness, and brings them out in delightfully painful ways.
