Venison: a poem


1 in stock



“Part orison, part ecstatic vision, part post-Lapsarian psalm, Venison turns the act of dressing/blessing a buck into rumination on ‘the red path’ of laboring, bloodshed, making, and the search for meaning that marks the human fall from paradise into time.”— Lisa Russ Spaar

Food doesn’t get any more local, cosmic, primitive, tasty, or disturbing than in this book-length, lyrical-meditative poem. At stake are no less than the origins and mysteries of flesh and touch.

Thorpe Moeckel teaches at Hollins University and is the author of two books of poems—Odd Botany and Making a Map of the River.
