Summary

Ted is an independent voice in poetry—brilliant, singular, and someone who has built an audience looking for work that couldn't come from anyone else. These poems lock on to the very concreteness of the world, and then spin away again—collapsing Euclidean geometry and the difficulty of a very small child shoving a block through the appropriately sized slot—giving them both a human touch and a sense of scale. The preoccupations of this collection line up nicely with what some of the most visible critics in poetry are focused on right now. Dana Jennings, Craig Teicher, and Steve Burt should all take to the work, which increases the chances of more highly visible review attention. Ted has already floated some interesting ideas for promoting the book (including incorporating it into a library residency in St. Louis) and should be an energetic supporter of the work.

    Originally released in 2015, this re-rerelease packs the same punch as the first version, but makes an even greater connection with the soul of the reader. Each piece has been re-seen and revamped to reflect the author’s continuing journey with his partner, Samantha King, without whom this book would not exist. Samantha is the muse, the “she” the writer speaks of; she is every woman who has felt like she wasn’t good enough, and every woman who struggles to find love.

    As the phoenix emerges from its ashes, Zebian emerges ablaze in these pages, not only as a survivor of abuse, but as a teacher and healer for all those who have struggled to understand, reclaim, and rise above a history of pain. The book is divided into six chapters, and six stages of healing: Falling, Burning to Ashes, Sparks of Phoenix, Rising, Soaring, and finally, A New Chapter, which demonstrates a healthy response to new love as the result of authentic healing. With her characteristic vulnerability, courage, and softness, Zebian seeks to empower those who have been made to feel ashamed, silenced, or afraid; she urges them, through gentle advice and personal revelation, to raise their voices, rise up, and soar.
