A collection about the poet's son's accidental overdose, Mary Jo Bang writes her way through a year of grief. I read this book once a year (at least). "Look at her--It's as if / the windows of night have been sewn to her eyes." This takes the elegy as form and expands it to include everything her heart can't take.
