Lusk sings of natures wild kingdom - animal, anima, animus - in which humans, animals, earth and its heavens are related in a marriage royal and holy: the porcupine in quill robe, the moose in his crown, birds whose songs can heal, moss rocks and wet caves, midnight caterwauls, and hemlock shadows. Without bears, bats, or fire, he asks, What is there to worship? Kin has been a finalist for the Tupelo Press Dorset and Snowbound Awards, the Sarabande Press Morton Prize, and White Pine Press Book Award. Many of the individual poems in this collection were first published in national journals, among them Appalachia, The Iowa Review, New Letters, Nimrod International Journal, North American Review, and The Southern Review.
