Bourne Bridge, Poems by Alice Kociemba

Heirloom dishes that travel oceans, a favorite flannel shirt with a torn elbow, a mackerel sky foretelling change...Through such simple but telling details, these poems celebrate the ordinary moments of life that hold so much meaning. With a mixture of humor, poignancy, and keen insight, this collection pays tribute to the power of family, the influence of place, and the importance of relationships that, like the bridge in the title poem, provide the connections that sustain us.
