Brian Beatty—Coyotes I Couldn't See

About the Book:

Coyotes I Couldn't See is a limited-edition chapbook collecting short narrative and lyric poems written and published over a two-year period. Some of the included poems also appeared in public art projects and aired on public radio.

Duluth folk singer/songwriter Charlie Parr says of the book: "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."
