BENEATH THE HEAVY
by lydia falls

in her debut poetry collection, Lydia Falls explores her inward encounters with nostalgia, gratitude, impermanence, and loss. at once lyrical and deeply searching, Lydia's poems are an existential act of remembering-- a collection of fractured memories that sift through reality and subjectivity to uncover truth. 

with illustrations by James Zucco, Lydia’s poems are brought to life with an elegant synergy of meditative art and words.
