Luminous Body, Glittering Ash explores the emergence of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Los Angeles and the complexities of losing friends, lovers, and family.. The poems in this volume hold a haunting, unmistakable relevance as we continue to navigate a seemingly interminable global pandemic. Echoing an era described by the poet as “the impossible time,” these poems hold out the possibility of survival in the midst of great sorrow and loss, and the attribution of meaning and purpose to the life that remains.

Follow along with C.W Emerson's poetry journey with his YouTube Channel and readings, let's do poetry, together!
