Bunch of Animals
by Henry Hughes
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.
