Macey Webb’s poetic memoir chronicles the passing of a life and a life changed by that passing. Grief is encapsulated in moments not by time, although, “chronoclock time isn’t a good measure of life” and the grand spirit of Jessica Elise could never be fully expressed in a single day of elegy. The monodies written by Macey Webb “cobble together a whole religion/ called i love you & you are sacred” and after reading these poems I, too, am left a believer.

“Crying at Walls” (Stubborn Mule Press 2019) was recently nominated for the 2020 Stonewall Barbara Gittings Literature Award.
