Four Neat Holes

Four Neat Holes is a short suite of thirteen poems that examines loss and grief through the eyes of four children growing up and coming of age. Two siblings live on a farm with their grandma, having lost both parents, and two others live with their take-charge mother and alcoholic father on "the wrong side of the tracks" in a small town. Set in the late 1970's, Four Neat Holes is written in a wry, matter-of-fact tone that surprises the reader with its surrealist imagery. Each poem is paired with a work of original art by Mo Hamilton, who created this series with both sketch-work and collage; the collage is created from found paper as well as paper that Mo modified with printmaking processes.
