Klahr’s debut poetry collection Meet Me Here At Dawn (YesYes Books) contains eroticism tinged with elegy, gratitude knit with doubt. With lyric energy and narrative determination, the poems are missives sent back from a threshold, chronicling disease, the unspoken pains of family, the fabric of an extra-marital affair.
