The Madison Review is starting a new online series showcasing exceptional work we have received that was not a good fit for the fall and spring editions. Our first piece will be "Apparitions" by Anele Rubin, a poem that explores the complex feelings of grief that comes after the loss of a loved one.
Anele Rubin’s poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in Rattle, december, Mudfish, Midwest Quarterly, Paterson Literary Review, San Pedro River Review, Chattahoochee Review, Raleigh Review, Miramar, New Ohio Review, and many other places. Her poetry collection, Trying to Speak, was published by Kent State University Press. She lives in upstate New York.
