Teresa's poems are feral, witty, and unrelenting. Like a shaman, she acts as a medium between the visible world and an invisible spirit world. Her words are magical, evoking a sense of healing, divination, and control over natural events. Just when you think you grasp her work, she tosses in a line, an image, a twist that alters your consciousness. —Rebecca Schumejda, Cadillac Men
