A collection of poems by Dan Wylie, with etchings by Roxandra Dardagan Britz.

"In this series of 24 poems and etchings, Dan Wylie and Roxandra Dardagan Britz marry gritty politics with voices of animal consciousness in a dark but compassionate meditation on our fragilities in a world predominantly predatory, toxic or indifferent. The poems and images in this book celebrate and mourn, remind us of the ephemeral and the substantial in our lives, or imagine a space in which animals speak with wisdom, sadness and humour." from the publisher's website
