Whether she is poetry or America, sinner or saint, we see her copious and honest, manacled and free. Before the Flood is a poetry collection that resonates with Americana: blues music and barrooms, whiskey and smoke, rivers and haunted highways, leather jackets, hoodies and Sunday’s best. Teets’ poetry navigates corrupted streets, turns dangerous corners and takes byways and alleys in an unending quest for salvation and answers.
