In Weiss’s debut collection, the sociology and psychology of being human is examined through microscopic and panoramic lenses. Grief, joy, and hope are strung along a tightly knit yarn that threads each line break. From the interwoven prosody to the meticulous syntax, there exists a delicate balance within these words that reverberate in the lives that inhabit the page, unveiling that what rips us apart is also what painstakingly holds us together.
