About the Book


In night’s silence

Tease and



Of want


In my mind,

Awakening hopes

To struggle,

Not with

Dreams and

Memories, but


Truth and love.

Lois Goldstein knows all too well the pain of loss and grief. Yet she also understands the need to speak her truth as she re-emerges into a new season of life.

Within her first collection of poems, Goldstein not only reflects on her diverse experiences of love and loss, but also on humorous moments, the fascinating aspects of human nature, and her internal struggles as she found the courage to embrace her true self and come out as a lesbian at the age of seventy-one.

Dust from the Attic is a volume of poems that offers a poignant look inside a life of love, heartbreak, and the realization of a lifelong truth.
