Re-Origin of Species
Re-Origin of Species is a lyric contemplation of our relationship to the environment.
Weaving personal narratives with a poetic study of the insect kingdom, this book looks at the interdependence of all species, drawing parallels between human illness, climate change and the state of peril of the natural world.
Diving into the poet's ancestry, these poems trace the inheritance of poverty, addiction and trauma against the backdrop of Southern Italy and Northern Ontario, to tell a story of grief, loss, adaptation and evolution. (From Book*Hug Press)
