Webb writes a potent and poignant poetic memoir of the loss of her partner to cancer from diagnosis to death and then the aftermath of those left behind. This genuine and intimate experience of grief is raw without dramatics, devastating while resilient, and manages to keep the sense of humor that shows our deepest humanity.
"Crying at Walls chronicles the passing of a life and a life changed by that passing. Grief is encapsulated in moments 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."
