How else do we return to ourselves but to fold
The page so it points to the good part
In this deeply intimate second poetry collection, Ocean Vuong searches for life among the aftershocks of his mother's death, embodying the paradox of sitting within grief while being determined to survive beyond it. Shifting through memory, and in concert with the themes of his novel On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous, Vuong contends with personal loss, the meaning of family, and the value of joy in a perennially fractured American spirit. Vivid, brave, and propulsive, Vuong's poems circle fragmented lives to find both restoration as well as the epicentre of the break.
The author of the critically acclaimed poetry collection Night Sky With Exit Wounds, winner of the 2016 Whiting Award, the 2017 T. S. Eliot Prize, and a 2019 MacArthur fellow, Vuong writes directly to our humanity without losing sight of the current moment. These poems represent a more innovative and daring experimentation with language and form, illuminating how the themes we live in and question are truly inexhaustible. Bold and prescient, and a testament to tenderness in the face of violence, Time Is a Mother is a return and a forging-forth all at once.

This books also highlights Ocean's mother and her passages of time. The narrative furthers developed by feeling the passage of time in relation to a loved one.
The passing of time is a complex narrative. A narrative this book very artistically captures.
His poetry and verse is as poignant as ever. He delivers an ample deep dive into grief. He moves you through his stories in a sort of past and future tense. Reimagining the past as if he is living it again in present time. Which is why it’s both unbelievably intimate and universal.
What makes this collection memorable are his moments of ‘release’ — he sets free his repressed emotions in a revelatory manner with introspective metaphors. Every poem is visionary and blended with animal like qualities and behaviors. The overall theme is fear: fear of life, loss, pain, closeness, and fear of ourselves. Fear of living when much is lost. Fear of living in the past, over and over again as if we could possibly change it.
