Late is driven by the alternating energies of prose poems and free verse. Woloch understands a person’s true relationships with family, friends and lovers arrive late–if at all. The exquisite pathos in these poems disclose Woloch’s abiding empathy for family, children, ex-lovers and strangers.
“Cecilia Woloch’s voice is both intense and precise. In so many of these poems, the forces of memory and longing are expertly brought under the sweet governance of craft and form.” — Billy Collins
