Kathleen Ossip is a delicate and soft-spoken woman—which only made her poetry that much more affecting. “I guess they could be seen as grim since they are about death,” she said, “but I feel like authenticity has a joy in it.” Ossip followed several elegy/acrostics to celebrities like Donna Summer and Amy Winehouse with a long-form poem "Lyric," which contains the following gem: “The salmon died in terror and agony/ I am eating him with vinegar sauce.”
