Blue Mesa Review // Homing // Selected by Leslie Jamison

“"Homing" is about finding home through missing it. It's about pigeons and floods and coal country and monogamy, but it's also an eloquent, sensitive exploration of what it means to find beauty in places that other people don't notice, and what it means to find yourself belonging to a place, or not belonging enough. More than anything, it's alive to the complexities of how so many experiences can feel several different ways at once." — Leslie Jamison
