The Good BacteriaBook - 2006
Musical, personable, equally alive to joy and despair, Thesen's poetry evokes the spirituality that lies at the periphery of things. Whether a glimpse of neighbor's yellow dress, a tube of polysporin, or a tin awning that is momentarily mistaken for a lake, Thesen knows that the spiritual can disguise itself in a number of forms. Crisp, intimate, and uncluttered, these poems include themes of the self versus the whole and time's insistence on redesigning everything we understand as familiar.
