dc.description.abstract"Seen from Above" is largely about being out of place and being an outsider. Settings for these poems range from laboratories to city parks. A tropical hummingbird gets lost and finds its way to Wisconsin. A pack of coyotes moves into an urban cemetery. A clone of an extinct species paws at the glass of its cage. The humans in these poems are as uncomfortable in their own skin as on the streets of a foreign city. The fat woman dreams of being someone else. The fake saints, even in the afterlife, still struggle with ambiguous roles and questions without answers. A young woman sees a dead body and an extinct bird, but no one will hear her alarm.en_US
