Abstract: The poems in this manuscript explore the thin veil between our identities as humans and our identities as animals. Through a tension between lush language, neatly contained, and concise language broken into rugged lines, this collection offers a study in the ways that we attempt to control and understand our desires. A variety of landscapes, from the Blue Ridge Mountains, to the New Mexico desert, to deep sea trenches provide a backdrop for what the speaker asserts to be a universal feature of humanity: our desire to decipher and contain our inner wildness.
