If You Bend It Backward Nothing Really Happens

by Chelsea Tadeyeske

"This poetry is a glorious sad punch in the face inside your face. It’s like a war grew a beautiful filagree talon, meant not to hurt anyone but to hang your skin on so you can go away somewhere you want to be known and lonely. How does Chelsea Tadeyeske do that? It’s embarrassing. It’s great."

- Cathy Wagner, author of Nervous Device (City Lights Books, 2012)
