And tilt in the direction of wish. And pry attractiveness from not likely places.” —Lia Purpura

In Animal Purpose, Michelle Y. Burke explores the lives of guys and girls as they stand poised among the will to like and the compulsion to hurt. in a single poem, a lady teaches a farmhand the correct method to slaughter a truckload of chickens. In one other, a pair confronts the new lack of a family member while a stranger makes an unforeseen confession in a crowded eating place. Set in either rural and concrete areas, those poems problem obtained rules approximately paintings, gender, and position. chance blurs into attractiveness and again back. Burke scours the tough edges of the area to discover “fleeting softness,” which she needs “into the realm like pollen that covers everything.”
