The Shape of Absence

The Shape of Absence is a new chapbook by Minneapolis-based artists Tom Beck and Kristin Paulson.

 

An absence lurks at the heart of this collection of twenty-one poems and illustrations. Part meditation on time and seasons — the subtle shifting from day to day, the agonizingly slow pace of change — and part a measured search for the elusive words for grief, this collection explores the shapes, sounds, and textures of loss.

This unique collection combines formal and free verse poems, long and short, each complemented by a beautiful, custom painting.

Release Date: May 17, 2022
