A piece of paper torn from a book


This piece of blackout poetry, “Sorrow Steeped,” reflects the depression, grief, and loss that many feel in this time of isolation and pervasive world tragedy. The poem reads: “The house is too full of sadness. It has empty hours to fill—and tears. Mostly, I stay in bed for days.”
