Haunted by the words on his older sister's tombstone -- "e;born & died... then / a single date / in November"e; -- the speaker in one poem struggles to understand a tragic loss: "e;The ampersand / tells the whole truth / and nothing but, / so help me God, / whose divine shrug / is expressed so / eloquently / by that grave mark."e;Blacksnake at the Family Reunion continues Huddle's poetic inquiry into the power of early childhood and family to infuse adulthood with sadness and despair -- an inquiry conducted with profound empathy for the fragility of humankind.
