A Brief History of Time, Beers‚e(tm) first collection of poetry, is at once an exploration of what it is to grow up in rural America and a treatise for social justice. These poems, many of them award-winning, span a wide range of styles ‚e" from plainsong free verse to sestinas to nearly epic works.The characters/speakers in Beers‚e(tm) poems range from the rural working class to mythological characters. These poems look at the world with an honest, unflinching eye. She is one of the up-and-coming poets from Generation X we will be hearing a great deal from in the future.

A few good poems, but most of these are too prose-y and pretentious. It needed a much better editor and much culling. Read full review
