Keegan lester's this shouldn't be beautiful but it was and it was all i had so i drew it  was selected by Mary Ruefle for the 2016 Slope Editions Prize.

"this shouldn’t be beautiful… is riddled with insight, full of America, made of dazzling cadences, and graced by a “perpetual openness” like that which Emerson ascribes to the Transcendentalist, along with a belief “in inspiration, and in ecstasy.” Keegan Lester is just the kind of poet we need right now—and this is inspired, ecstatic poetry."

—Timothy Donnelly
