520    For Irish-born poet and zookeeper Eric Cole, the fourteen 
       lines and rhythmic patterns of the sonnet echo the very 
       building blocks of life. Within the basic structure of 
       simple genetic material lies the limitless potential for 
       the existence of all living things, be they man or beast. 
       So, too, within the simple structure of the sonnet, there 
       is a similar universe of untold possibilities. Now, in 
       these robust and stylish poems, the mysteries of the 
       animal kingdom are explored with genuine scientific 
       curiosity and rendered with tenderness, stimulating 
       language and unmistakable Irish wit. From the reviled 
       Portuguese man o' war to the glorious hyacinth macaw, from
       the elusive snow leopard to the bizarre pangolin and even 
       to the human animal itself, Cole demonstrates how life 
       exists in inexplicable but nonetheless indispensable 
       variety. This collection serves to remind us what we stand
       to lose if we fail to appreciate the small states of grace
       that befall us in the disappearing natural wonders of our 
       world
