A Simple Human Motion
by Jeff Worley

[part of the April 2006 bookclub Poetry Double Feature]

Through the eyes of a gardener, backyard reader, and observer of nature, A Simple Human Motion examines the relationship between humans and the many small lives we encounter each day—those of insects, spiders, possums, and an assortment of other creatures. Rich imagery and accessible, often playful language help us feel the impact the narrator has on these various lives. Whether smashing a blackfly in a book of poetry or feeding a possum some spoiled cantaloupe, the poet is always intensely aware of the dramas going on all around him.
