For 100 days of the pandemic, Matthew Wolfe, a West Virginia writer, musician, and artist, took pictures of random knickknacks and keepsakes he kept on a hutch and posted them on the internet. Then Hayley Haugen asked poets to send her poems inspired by the photos of the objects. 44 responded, and the result is this book. Hayley Mitchell Haugen is an English professor at Ohio University, Southern, in Ironton, Ohio.
