The world extends itself to us. Some refuse the offer, electing to take their own lives. Others pull back, subscribing to fear and the ego's need for order. Still, the wild, ungovernable forces break through in this book, in the form of animals: exuberant dogs, deer splintering a fence, bears that slip in through the door of dreams. Hilberry's poetry explores life's large energies and our resistances.
