Poetry. "Thorpe Moeckel takes in the gorgeous, complex natural world that surrounds us, and which we too often ignore. He adds our goofy and often-painful culture. And then he shows us that language is capable of a more expressive response to these things than most of us ever thought possible."—David Young
"Thorpe Moeckel is litanist, pilgrim, sensualist, beseecher, explorer, and connoisseur of the heart's underbrush and waterways. ODD BOTANY gives us a language of plentitude and paradox that's 'rambunctious on the tongue'—pop-culturally savvy, intensely lyric, and capable of an incomparably delicate tensility."—Lisa Russ Spaar
