Losing one's parents is a growth experience many people can relate to. Catherine Graham's collection of poems, Pupa — fittingly named after the chrysalis stage of an insect — intimately explores this loss, employing metaphor and rhythm evocatively. Like all memorable poets, Graham imbues daily events with transcendent relevance.
