“The relations with animality are reversed; the beast is set free.”
– Michel Foucault, Madness and Civilization
“I’ll Be Right with You,” from Animalities:

underlying all things.
David Dodd Lee is the author of nine books of poems, including Animalities (Four Way Books), The Coldest Winter on Earth (Marick Press, 2012).

His poems have appeared in Court Green, Denver Quarterly, Field, Jacket, The Nation, Nerve, and in many other places. He is also a visual artist, writes and publishes fiction, publishes chapbooks and full-length titles as editor-in-chief of 42 Miles Press, and teaches classes in poetry, publishing, art history, and the art of collage at Indiana University South Bend, where he is assistant professor of English.
