Persistere: A Brigid Cycle Chapbook
To pull the smoke in through lips and
Breathe out fire. To
Swim depths not ready to find. To
Win light's dew on face and
Frost on teeth.
Grit, grind jaw, chew over, and
Know its savor and rib.

What readers say of Bethany Beeler's work:
"It is rare to experience an artist who is so authentic that I am inspired to be more of myself simply by being exposed to their work."
"It's what I want from a novel-a story I'm compelled to keep reading and not put down, even though I should be going to sleep!"
