In pre|dispositions, Tim'm West's first collection of entirely new work since the 2007 Flirting, the author known for his outward introspection shamelessly puts forth a work where his own affirmations on loving aim to mobilize the brave community of "rhyters" he imagined in his first book Red Dirt Revival. West constructs this multi-genre collection of writing unified in its exploration of the inextricable relationship between the break and its healing. Through compound words, with some poetic liberty, West moves through his|story, father|hood, book|marks, in|between, desire|ability, every|thing, and he|art with some of his most vulnerable work to date-- something of note, given the deeply personal nature of his existing work. A philosopher, by training, West's poetry is ambitious, not so much for its attempt to code experience with terse words or heavy symbolism, but for wordplay that suggests everyone can find, through the author, a mirror. Lose yourself here to find yourself here.
