Little Deaths by Shilo Niziolek



Little Deaths is a collection of poems that provide the reader with insight into loss: of love, of stories never told, of the dogs who become so much more than simple pets. The poems don’t end there however, they carry the reader forward, into a place where grief grows and blossoms, and eventually blooms into something more—healing and hope. Without ever tipping over into sentimentality, Shilo Niziolek weaves poems that will make you simultaneously weep with sorrow and then step outside barefoot and tremble in awe at the absurdity and beauty of living. This collection shows us what real love looks like and how once a dog  or person has burrowed into your heart, you’ll never ever want it any other way.

Available for pre-order, books will ship late June 2024!
