More Description

Poetry. LGBT Studies. "Poetry is an enrapturing process that intensifies the discovery of experience and only what arises out of this urgency produces utterance that is distinctive and honest. Here in these sinewy acts shine the mobilities of praise, the delight in the body's beauty and its surprises, the wonder of beholding energy and love. The poems are glimpses of sensual epiphanies, lightning flashes on the dramatic heart of event, memories from the crux of dream. Here are secrets that lie within the adventures of desire. Pursue them, and participate in the pleasure."--James Broughton"Jeffery Beam's THE NEW BEAUTIFUL TENDONS proves what many of us have known for some time: he is one of our most important and valuable poets. No matter what he touches on, it is always observed with Beam's precise and careful eye in spare, direct language that's as fresh as a sunrise and the sweet air of morning. Read these poems and brighten your day. I guarantee it."--Michael Rumaker"All children should hear you, the universe glistening. The spirit of poetry and nature and Eros are carried forth into and for the future. You are one of the poets I feel closest to--kindred spirit in love with the natural world and kindred spirit of awe and affection to our own kind. Feather to feather, wing to wing."--Antler"These juicy poems, at the intersection of spirituality and sexuality, leave me breathless with their erotic thrust."--Edward Field
