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.
