Bunch of Animals
Reviewing Henry Hughes collection, Moist Meridian, Robert Pinsky praised the “alertness, generosity, irony and candor of poems” that were “endlessly curious about relationships . . . abiding, fearful, but engaging mystery.” That mystery is intensified in Bunch of Animals where we experience black dragon fish at a thousand fathoms, eels tunneling through soft mud, earwigs wriggling out of shingles, swans winging high above, laboratory monkeys escaping cages, and cats slinking into our dreams. With deep scientific and artistic imagining, these poems allow us to explore, reconsider, and celebrate the intimacies and distances of our bestial bonds.
