Type 2 is a journey from being diagnosed to living each day with diabetes. If you feel shocked, if you feel angry or need healing for yourself (or loved one) there is a poem within these pages.
“The evolution of a poet is seldom pretty. We pull from lifewhat is frightening, terrifying, painful and sad, doing our best to rewrite our tragedies so perhaps others will catch the metaphor and learn from ourmistakes, with never once breathing the words, “I told you so”, out loud.
In Type-2, poet Ben Ditmars evolves. And though the words he writes are beautiful, this is not a pretty maturing. It is gripping to watch a young man come face to face with his mortality. It is more than impactful to have his words lead you to questioning your own. I have watched family member after family member struggle with adult-onset diabetes. I’ve had friends carry snacks just in case and watched them jab at their fingers. I have never had anyone make me really think about this kind of life, let alone my chances of ending up living it, the way this collection of poems has.”

Desperate times make for enticing and dangerous bedfellows. Fane is done living in Hell, and there is little time until her newest Maester has unrestricted ownership over her. When an Angel is captured and held in the Deep, she knows he might be her only chance at freedom—for only an Angel can break the demonic bond tethering her to Hell. Mihr was ambushed by a bunch of Demons, who dragged him straight to the underworld. Now one of the Hellspawn—a sexy Demoness—offers him a way out. A forbidden way. He spent his life fighting her kind and avoiding temptation, but with freedom and life beckoning, he finally agrees to her conditions. Together the unlikely pair flees, but the escape leaves Mihr close to death and in Fane’s care. Soon both Heaven and Hell will come for them and they have to make a choice: Die, or stay together.
