T. J. Beitelman has done a wonderful job fulfilling that role demanded of the poet, the artist, and the thinker.

Synopsis

Poetry. This loosely federated republic of curses, verses, and fractured mythic narratives holds a single truth to be self-evident: our genius for disorder is our truest gift.

"It is spectacular to watch his poems upend everything. In this book, the paint squeezes its artist from the tube. The facts are not to be believed, but you will ardently believe that they are facts."—Darcie Dennigan
