"My favorite poetry is when we get to be creative with the poet. Ulrich Jesse K Baer provides space between his corresponding brilliant ideas for us to climb into the poem with him. Arrive at this book by leaning into the gears of your imagination! Deer Black Out reminds me walking is falling and catching ourselves with our feet. I am grateful for his challenging, emotional labor--"departed, yr stanzas/my withheld image of you/thins its swung moonlight." Let's get falling and catching ourselves! Let's go upstream to Baer country! I am an enormous fan of this poet and his book!"--CAConrad, author of You Don't Have What It Takes to Be My Nemesis: And Other (Soma)tics
"Engaged on a transverse plane of psycho-physical consciousness, Ulrich Jesse K Baer is aware that the body existentially wages war for survival on a plane of societal infamy that institutionally condemns not only the book's basic lingual anatomy but also empowers the existential scale it implies. Certainly not the static grounding that appears as chronological consequence but as living aberration."--Will Alexander, author of Refractive Africa: Ballet of the Forgotten and Finalist for the 2022 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry
