Poetry. In HEIRLOOM BULLDOG, animals seize their freedom and defend their homes. Pet-trade escapees thrive. Nile monitor lizards prowl public beaches and Burmese pythons feast on panthers in the Everglades. Runaway factory hogs join wild descendants of Russian boars, pigeons survive run-ins with cabs, and coyotes cruise the suburbs. Muscular, tender, lucidly imagistic, these poems examine the intersection of animals and humans, showing the damage done, and the splendor that remains.
