As a high-powered salesperson, stock-broker or manager they are consistently in the top echelons of their field and should avoid jobs that have little chance for advancement. The sable is surely the most handsome of all the antelope. Particularly magnificent is the giant sable of southern Africa. Although it is an extremely endangered animal, the majority of its population lives safely in the Luando Reserve in Angola. Careers & Hobbies.

From "Delores Jepps"

It seems insane now, butshe’d be standing soakedin schoolday morning light,her loose-leaf notebook,flickering at the bus stop,and we almost trembledat the thought of her mouthfilled for a moment with bothof our short names. I don’t knowwhat we saw when we sawher face, but at fifteen there’sso much left to believe in…

Reviews about Fast Animal (7):
Funky
I like contemporary poetry that is honest--like "two guys sitting in a coffee shop shooting the breeze about their lives with nothing else to do" honest. No holds barred. No topics taboo. No one out to be offended; just guys talking. That's what I found here. Tim Seibles has led an interesting life. It is wonderful that he's a poet and knows not to let a single, seemingly insignificant or maybe even embarrassing detail of that life slip away. "Delores Jepps" is a good example. It's a reflection of a teenaged crush, which is common enough. But the way he writes about it is so honest, so open, so absent of pretentious or the million-and-one cliched formulas that hover around the topic like gnats, that I totally believe him. Better yet, I'm grateful to him for pointing to a door to my own, similar experiences when I was that age. No wonder this book was a finalist for the National Book Award. I may not be able to give it any rewards, but I'll be happy to pay for that coffee.

We used this book in my last class. I enjoyed the poems, especially the careful way they were arranged. This book made me think of arrangement of my poems, more than any other book we've used in school. Race is in his writings, but he doesn't beat you over the head with it. I appreciated that. I think anyone would find something to like in this book.

Doesn't get any better than this! Brilliant poet!
A book of poetry I will keep coming back to. Such clea lines that cut through to the absolute core.
