Gold That Frames the Mirror by Brandon Melendez

In Brandon Melendez's debut poetry collection, Gold That Frames the Mirror, nothing sung can truly be lost.

Yet do not mistake Melendez for a poet of an uncomplicated sadness: even when he writes of deep loss, there is the possibility of wonder and joy.
