"Brian Beatty’s poems conjure complete lives — houses, yards, people, ghosts, dogs, squirrels and invisible coyotes — out of just a few stanzas. This collection reads like music, creating worlds that look like everyday life complete with the terrible uncertainty, the delicate and wavering balance, the long, long drop into the bottomless." — Charlie Parr
Paperback, Limited Edition, 48 pages

Coyotes I Couldn’t See is a strong collection -- I particularly loved the tight, little poems, all with perfect language choices to easily paint an image, memory, or mood.

I've enjoyed Brian's work for years and this book did not disappoint. This is a beautifully soulful and sometimes haunting collection. His ability to create such rich worlds with so few words is nothing short of masterful. Brian is one of our great living writers.
