AN INTIMATE, RAW EXPERIENCE: “Crying at Walls”

Poems by Macey Webb

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

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.
