Nicholson returns with her second full poetry collection. Postscript affords us a sensual exploration and meditation on place, time, and loss. From West Virginia to New York to Ecuador to Spain, we follow as Nicholson unpacks a life through the details and experiences unique to each place. A gentle meandering of loss, of joy, of the sensuality of life shared through poetic glimmers that live and breathe and express the wonder of the world. Each poem acts as a postcard, a note from a place and time we can no longer inhabit, and are left with meditations on what was and what will still be. This is a collection that haunts the soul in the same way one finds with the discovery of long forgotten family letters, pictures, and postcards. And from these pieces emerges the multiple threads of a life lived, a life shared, and the memories that one is left with. Nicholson returns with her second full poetry collection.
