"'Cachexia' is a poem Max Ritvo wrote during the late stages of his nine-year fight with cancer (Ewing's sarcoma). Cachexia is known more commonly as 'wasting of the body' and is present in people with AIDS, cancer, and other diseases. Max noticed the shifts in his appetite and body despite his efforts to eat and maintain nutritional status. Max wrote 'Cachexia' just a few months before he died. It informs the reader about the inner world of a terminally ill young man." —Ariella Riva Ritvo
Max Ritvo is the author of Four Reincarnations (Milkweed Editions, 2016). He was a teaching fellow at Columbia University and lived in Manhattan, New York. He died on August 23, 2016.
