9781478730552: Before the Flood

"Our love was cursed from the beginning. She would have saved me or I would have destroyed her. Either option was not viable. Our love evaporated into the ether, both freeing and manacling us. It hurts too much to look back now." Whether she is poetry or America, sinner or saint, in this first collection we see her copious and honest, manacled and free - much like everything in Before the Flood. Teets blends images and styles into a hip-hop Kerouac, Dylanesque slam and though the poems defy imposing structures, they flow with a Beat-like ease. A strong current of religiosity is woven deftly in imagery and sentiment and at the same time reads rustic and gritty. The compositions contained within have sleek chrome and modern lines. So many of the offerings in Before the Flood harken invocations of Bukowski or Ginsberg, Whitman or Eliot. These great poets' influence on Teets' writing and his admiration of their work are notable throughout. Before the Flood is a prosy collection of narratives reveling in the long suppression of self-truths and loss of faith in the accepted societal norms of America. These poems resonate with Americana: blues music and barrooms, whiskey and smoke, rivers and haunted highways, leather jackets, hoodies and Sunday's best. They navigate corrupted streets, turn dangerous corners and take byways and alleys in an unending quest for salvation and answers. Teets, through his granite and blues word poesy walks those paths with smiles and tears, joy and exhilarating pain.

TRAGIC AND COMIC HOW WE FOLLOW OURSELVES NO MATTER WHERE WE GO.

WHETHER SHE IS POETRY OR AMERICA, SINNER OR SAINT, WE SEE HER COPIOUS AND HONEST, MANACLED AND FREE.
