The Buffalo Bills are a professional American football team based in the Buffalo, New York metropolitan area. They are members of the Eastern Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Bills franchise was formed in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League (AFL), before joining the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL merger of 1970.

Poetry. "Reading Tim Seibles reminds me of the Buddhist parable of the burning house: everyone ignores the flames, pretends there is no smoke, no pain, no prospect of death. Or, if there is, it will only happen to someone else, someone in another world. According to these teachings, aversion and attachment are not the greatest barriers to fulfillment; it is indifference that endangers a soul. Not to embrace or confront what is undeniably there but to detach ourselves and retreat. It is precisely this indifference that these poems challenge with lyric insistence - begging, assailing, teasing, affirming. In this mystical, romantic and political collection, Seibles is willing to take a chance, any chance to engage the general malaise of our times. He is a musician of the spirit and of the body, and it is that quality which carries us forward breath by breath, line by line. The journey is oddly enchanting, even transformative"--Nin Andrews.

"...[T]here are things far worse than speaking out of turn," writes Tim Seibles in the "Open Letter" that begins his fourth full-length collection of poetry. BUFFALO HEAD SOLOS is poetry at its most urgent, fearless and necessary. Again and again he accurately names what ails us:

And still, we keep

turning from the sound

like two-legged animals all buttoned and zipped

unwilling to recognize this tall ladder of bones

to which we cling briefly with our small teeth.

And because we do not see well into the future

because we are busy taking as much as we can get because

money has infected these days with its prolific germ,

what surrounds us looks like forever

but it is not --

from "Ladder"

But Seibles isn't interested in preaching -- at least not in the deadening way we've come to think of it. He sings a wake-up call directly to our cells, summoning us back to our bodies, our voices, our imaginations:

Listen.

We belong to no nation.

One day we will hold the earth

again as if She were a love

nearly lost, Her rainy hair tangled in our hands.

from "Late Shift"

With BUFFALO HEAD SOLOS, Tim Seibles reinvents language daring and delicious enough to carry his songs. In a time when, as he writes in "Really Breathing," "evil wears some really sexy clothes," these poems burn a clear light.
