M. F. McAuliffe (The Crucifixes and Other Friday Poems
, I'm Afraid of Americans
) was shocked and saddened by the death of Ursula K. Le Guin. Written over the succeeding twelve months, these poems describe an accumulating, multi-layered experience of personal and communal loss.
"The poems are heart-rending and at the same time full of love."

"Each day the world got a day's worth of worse, and went on," McAuliffe writes. And this sensibility of endurance, of "climbing chalk cliffs by front teeth alone" gives us this a particular grief, a critique and context, a poetic something-more, on the death of Ursula K. Le Guin. A monumental monument, a sending forth of some Great Ship, a pain-spattered sunset, a howling and more."
