In the lucid, melodic, various poems of This World, Teddy Macker returns us to the great mystery all around us, a mystery we so easily forget, the mystery of trout, the mystery of orchard, the mystery of our beautiful human bodies. Within these pages, Macker also chronicles the journey inside the whale, telling us not just of fear and trembling but also of the magnificent harps only found in the belly of the beast. By turns ecological, erotic, compassionate, and mystical, these poems return us to “this world, the kingdom we’ve been looking for.”
