Animals / Bodies


2014 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Poetry (Adult Nonfiction)

In Animals / Bodies the death of an opossum leads to the death of a birthing; while the birth of a boy is akin to that of a wolverine. These poems are alive with the feeling of shared skins and bodies, with common struggles and experience. Couturier draws no lines between human and nonhuman fragility or vulnerability.
