Summary
"In O'Reilley's poems, human, animal, and mineral creations interpenetrate and share surreal conversation - even stones exchange stories of "hot times in the magma" and animals are listened to intently. Here sacred inquiry in grounded in a passion for the natural world, resolving questions through lyric, erotic, and sensual response. The poems of Half Wild revel in desire and longing as instruments of theological critique."--BOOK JACKET
