Flight Animal is a collection of poetry in four sections. Specific layering of names, countries and cities frame deeply personal experience; the speaker's tone, in patterned free verse, connects events and perspectives. New Mexico, London, the Chihuahua Desert, Italy, Prague, Mexico and New York are reflected upon. Objects that aid travel ranging from buses, wings, trains, legs, bridges, planes, bicycles and cars save as both literal and metaphorical "vehicles." The title of the collection, Flight Animal, suggests the book's inherent subject of movement as a means of survival.
