There is an animal inside all of us – and sometimes it comes out!

 

These two poems explore the┬ánegotiable territories of the human and the animal, and what happens when the two meet. Roebuck in a Thicket looks at a charged moment when man encounters the wild on its own terms. Wolf in the City explores what happens when the wild comes into the city.┬áCan common ground be found? Can the two peacefully co-exist? Can we deny our true animal selves, and if we do – does something inside of us die? Can there be true Civilisation without Nature?
