    About The Book

    This collection by African American poet Tim Seibles explores a range of poetic form, including lyric, ode, narrative, and mystical. Like a “fast animal,” the poet’s voice can swiftly change direction and tone as he crisscrosses between present and past.

    Built like one single sustained song, Fast Animal is alive with music, ardor, and wit that flow in utterances that are uniquely [Seibles’] and his alone.” — Laure-Anne Bosselaar, author of The Hour Between

    From “Delores Jepps”

    It seems insane now, but

    she’d be standing soaked

    in schoolday morning light,

    her loose-leaf notebook,

    flickering at the bus stop,

    and we almost trembled

    at the thought of her mouth

    filled for a moment with both

    of our short names. I don’t know

    what we saw when we saw

    her face, but at fifteen there’s

    so much left to believe in…

    Tim Seibles, who teaches at Old Dominion University, is the author of six previous books, including Body Moves and Hurdy-Gurdy. His poetry has been featured in Best American Poetry 2010. Seibles has been the recipient of an NEA grant for poetry and Open Voice award.
