How do we scale up our imagination of the human? How does one live one's life in the Anthropocene?

How to Hold a Pebble--Jaspreet Singh's second collection of poems--locates humans in the Anthropocene, while also warning against the danger of a single story. These pages present intimate engagements with memory, place, language, migration; with enchantment, uncanniness, uneven climate change and everyday decolonization; with entangled human/non-human relationships and deep anxieties about essential/non-essential economic activities. The poems explore strategies for survival and action by way of a playful return to the quotidian and its manifold interactions with the global and planetary. Of loss no scale remains no seawall... Between one's despairs / they will brighten / Hope's in-built traces.
