What if words could bend the universe, wrap it around a single soul? This original collection of poetry—extensive and exact, personal and public—seeks to do just that.

Bending the Universe immerses readers in the beautifully, brutally honest poetry of Justin Wetch—an idealist disguised as a pessimist. Organized into five sections (Society, Love, Life, Personal, and Nature), this collection explores everything from diversity to body image, heartbreak to politics. Poems spring from each page in a voice that’s almost audible—and always thought-provoking.
