How do we answer ourselves, or cry out to others, in the face of extreme loss? Eventually one makes a decision. G. Greene decided to write. His "Poems In a Time of Grief" is an homage not only to love and the remarkable individual who was his wife, but to their mutual memories and the architecture of how they built their particular relationship, its endurance, and generosity. His poems rhyme, sing, and at times explode or flail about. Many, such as the beautiful and poised "All is Lost" were written in a “house so quiet you can hear a heart ache.” Yet his book is full of intent and energy; the several pieces written in prose carry intense momentum, like "The First 101 Things," which is heart-rending in its closure. When one is bereft, it’s hard to know what to do next, so it became important to this poet that he offer this book to others who may be grieving, or are close to someone who is. These poems, offered chronologically, say, "This is how it was for me, this is what it’s like. I don’t know what’s next."
