Forthcoming from Beatlick Press in September 2021
“In his stunning sophomore effort, The Pieces You Have Left, Tim Staley brings you to the woods and asks you to stay the night. In this moving and fast-paced collection, Staley touches on an array of subjects–space travel, love, fatherhood, masculinity, death, solitude, youth, and dementia–delving deeper than ever before into the sticky creases of life. Answer the muse like Staley does with palpable honesty and daring self-reflection, with hyperbole and easy rhythms. Glide through these poems like a juvenile cougar and drift line by line across the star field.” -Jim Thompson of Cacti Fur
