About the Book

"In Tim Peterson's vividly engaging first collection, the voice - voicing - becomes a character that bobs, weaves, tacks, leaps, & refuses to take no for an answer. These gyroscopic acrobatics make the new not just an idea but a performance. Peterson's not just moved in, he's made a home for himself on the block and invited us over. Hear, Hear!" - Charles Bernstein

"Since I Moved In is full of undisguised longings that unfold onto a larger surface of home, a job, a body, and a life. A texture/al transferring of third person other to a first person subject situated on the thinnest of junctures, where mind meets the gaze. This locus nexus proclaims something a little rougher, a littler softer, and something more tender for all of humanity." - kari edwards

"Spinoza said we do not know what the body can do. We also do not know what poetry can do. Tim Peterson's commanding work is all about a new Gaia-like hypothesis: that the body is a unity like the earth, and that the strangest seeming perversions are as ordinary as a pet or rat. Transgendered, trans-naturalistic, transcutaneous are all the styles he has on his palette to offer up the 'internality of the body,' also, the lived and vulnerable prose poetry of entrail and trail. This is Peterson's courageous knife against torpor, dogma, and stupidity. You will be dazzled and perhaps deflowered by this kind of originality and attack. Now you know a little more about what poetry can be." - David Shapiro
