Description


In his fifth collection of poems, Christopher Kennedy sifts through the detritus of the past to uncover the memories, images, and symbols that shape an individual's consciousness. Looking to animals and their instincts for inspiration, drawing shape from the poet's Irish Catholic working-class roots, these prose poems transcend grief and depression by seeking humanity's place in the natural world.
