Poetry. Predator and prey, host and parasite; symbiosis, evolution, competition. Nature is a complex web of relationships and dualities. In his debut poetry collection, WE ARE ALL JUST ANIMALS & PLANTS, Alex Manley maps the "red in tooth and claw" of the natural world onto contemporary relationships, exposing the brutality of longing and the highs and lows of love in the digital age.
