These lyric elegies, spoken by the under-self,” become a series of subtle chants which sing the speaker into being both physically and spiritually, and through which Mead seeks solace, enlightenment, and joy in the cycles of life and death in the natural world.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From The Origin”:

Twice I have walked through this life
once for nothing, once
for facts: fairy shrimp in the vernal pool
glassy-winged sharp-shooter
on the failing vines. Count me
among the animals, their small
committed calls.
Count me among
the living. My greatest desire
to exist in a physical world.
