Shanna Powlus Wheeler directs the Writing Center at Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA. Her chapbook of poems, Lo & Behold, was published by Finishing Line Press, and her first full-length book of poems, Evensong for Shadows, is forthcoming from Resource Publications, an imprint of Wipf and Stock Publishers. About this poem, Wheeler writes, “This poem is dedicated to my grandmother, a retired nurse, who in an unofficial, at-home capacity cared for me just after my first miscarriage—in the raw aftershock.” “D&C Aftercare” © 2018 by Shanna Powlus Wheeler.
