A collection of poems focused on trauma. To be released by Close to the Bone Publishing, March 26th, 2021.
Zakariah Johnson on the work: "Through his honest and direct depictions of death, survivor's guilt, and the alluring simplicity of war, J.B. Stevens documents how to be a veteran is to forever miss a part of yourself still out on the unfinished patrol. You don't laugh in the face of death because you want to die, you laugh because it's the best way to go. Haunting and visceral images that stick with you long after reading."

Shawn Berman, author of Once Upon a Blue Moon and editor of The Daily Drunk, on the work:
"It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No. It’s J.B. Stevens: the official poet laureate of Flavortown and he’s kicking ass and taking names. The Best of America Cannot Be Seen is a nonstop onslaught of pop culture goodness, flying off the page and into your eyeballs at 100mph. Stevens’s latest collection has it all: a Dwight Schrute ode to beets, midnight Taco Bell runs, and Thanos stuck at the DMV. What the hell more could you possibly want?"
Eileen Stevens, mother of the author, on the work:
"You wrote a poetry book about bigfoot? What does that even mean? When are you going to do something I can tell my friends about? Ginnie’s son is a lawyer."
