From the amazing Constellation Poet, R. Clift, comes this heartfelt poem about how our words and the stories we tell live on after we're gone, printed on handmade paper.
R. Clift writes, "It is both sad and comforting to know your voice will carry farther than your feet will ever take you, your words will live on in the memories of others and pages you've filled long after we've gone, although it's true, we cannot live forever (we can't even live for long). Your printed thoughts, your understanding of this world, the ink that bleeds from your veins is eternal."
The words are printed in a typewriter font on handmade cotton rag paper with deckle edges. The color of the paper is a natural, unbleached white but may occasionally have tiny speckles of random color from other fibers mixed in. Size varies slightly because of the imperfect nature of handmade paper, but will be roughly 5" x 7", 8" x 10", or 11" x 14" based on your selection.
