The Grace of Necessity

For the past 25 years Samuel Green has lived on a tiny island only four square miles in size populated by fewer than a hundred people. The island has no regular phone service, no electricity, no stores. These poems are informed by the lessons Green has learned living in a small rural community where loss and grief have immediate effects, and where love, meaningful work, intimate daily engagement with the natural world, and fidelity to “the art of the marginal” offer a way forward.
