The devil has never been as human as he is in What You and the Devil Do to Stay Warm, Tyree Daye’s utterly engrossing chapbook. In these poems, we are given both beauty as well as the darkness it thrives in: a pond of blood rather than a pool, the pain of a rotting tooth that make the blues really sing. Tyree Daye is a first caliber truth-teller whose poems remind us that godliness is a choice we must decide to make daily against the odds of living.
