“when such splendor what endeavor can we manage beside a moment. grief is a little pebble we can tie to a string and swallow and pull in time to our favourite song when it plays on the radio so we can feel it deep like an anvil.”
a pebble is a Steinian exploration of anticipatory grief. This languid and lush poems winds its way around the complicated feelings of love, hope, and fear that one can experience when a loved on is terminally ill.
Two editions of a pebble were produced in 2018. The first a series of ten numbered copies, made with a sewn binding, and containing an handmade envelope with a pebble tied to a string affixed to the back of the chapbook, with a cover featuring a photograph of the full set of pebbles.
The second edition of the chapbook was made for Calgary Canzine 2018, is made in a smaller format with more pages, and uses the same cover image. Copies of that edition are available on their own, or as part of the Canzine ?! Press Pack.
