The Mouths of Grazing Things is an unflinching, lyrical meditation on nature's forced exodus from the human, and the forms of longing, violence, magnetism and self-otherness that ensue. Explosively tender and fiercely protective of where nature lurks in and out of us still, as well as attentive to the ways in which we are constructing our selves as we go, Boyden translates the new landscape as an act of bravery in a world where the brain in the jar is anchored by an apple, a fisherman finds love songs to fish in the barber's sweepings, and the mannequins are embarrassed by their severed wrists. In poems built to last an unsafe journey, Boyden delivers the now-beyond, the almost-was, the near-forgotten, and the just-in-time.
