Poetry. As poet Richard Jones says, BREATH ENOUGH is "a book of courage and consolation" in telling of the loss of a sister to brain cancer. Yet at the same time the beauty of Teter's poetry tells a different story, one that can't help but affirm a life-giving spirit. These are unflinching poems committed to the power of love and compassion equal to the ravages of illness. Teter has entered the kingdom of disease and come back to share with us the knowledge only loss can give.
