And that she would not only reanimate those uneasy ghosts stalking the roots of memory, but also the ghostly plants and animals of the world that devoured and mourned them? One by one her ancestral victims rise from the cannibal fog of our oldest past to live in these marvelous prose-poetry stereopticons. Stories to be truly chilled by, wolf hair by wolf hair. In these poems, at the nexus of science and mythology, Mary McMyne delicately dissects wolf, butterfly and crocus with the same careful intensity. As these figures say their names, they tell, too, the price of liberation from—and into—story.

Disclaimer I received a free kindle copy of this book The poems here were right up my alley So, much so I picked out another book of poetry by William Graham off of Kindle Unlimited after finishing this one The poems cover everything from old tales, to grief, to walks among nature, and even ongoing politics I like the variety of topics, but they still all feel like they could belong to the same collection. Best poetry First, thank you to author and Goodreads for the opportunity to read this book through the Goodreads giveaway program. The was an ARC from Good Reads This collection includes haiku, zip odes and other forms of poetry Graham is fascinated with darker subjects like murder, death and night time Some poems have an autobiographical feel but most don t You can tell who his literary influences are by references made in the poems The migration poem is very timely but the poems on the planets are my favorites. I won this book on goodreads for an honest review. I liked this, but I do think the first third of the book was the best You might feel differently, however Nature and death are strong themes here, as is love. Poetry you feelLiving by the ocean surrounded by rocky cliffs and ancient forest, it felt as if the author wrote the poems just for me I read it complete in one sitting, savoring each line Beautifully written and relevant content including a poem that touched me about immigration on which I thought I was firm, changed me My favorite was WANDERERS which is how my husband and I live and made me smile that this poem is our life goal Thank you for such a wonderful collection I look forward to.
