In their new pamphlet, Jaydn DeWald offers a haunting meditation on love and loss—a series of grief-induced sketches ‘where drums pound // the whispers’ and ‘a horn wails / [t]he darkness.’ What is the difference, asks DeWald, between an incantation and a poem, a ritual and a song? Engaging well-known poets and heretofore unknown forms, Then Darkness embodies the restorative, if not the resurrectional, powers of apostrophe.
