Songs from a Wild Place is Jason Kirkey's second volume of poetry. Its motifs range from self-transformation, quiet revelations found in the natural world, love, and the re-imagination of culture and spirit. In all cases this poetry emerges out of a conversation with the world at the edge of individual identity. It is a book about finding the authentic voice and using it to create transformation in both the human and other-than-human worlds.
