May Day is pageantry, a festival of surviving the winter, and a symbol for the conflicts at play in Gretchen Marquette's debut collection of poetry. Losses and loves play out on her pages - 'What does it mean to be in love?' one poem asks. 'As it turns out, the second best thing that can happen to you is a broken heart.' Two narrative threads pull the book together: the end of an intense romantic relationship and Marquette's reflections on her brother's multiple tours of duty in the Middle East. Marquette writes openly and vulnerably about loss, survival and resilience.
