"A few years ago a friend commented that he liked the way I handled animals in my poetry. I didn’t realize how much of my poetry is infused with the animal spirit. This collection brings... More > together some of my experiences with animals: from leech, tick and trilobite, to sheep, deer and mammoth. I appreciate animals in their own environment, and accept them on their own terms. I write about present day species and the archaic no longer with us. I wonder about our break from the animal mind set, and the grieving for our own lost instincts."
