Ghosts of Giant Kudu

by Danny Rosen

The turmoil and richness of his surroundings impacted Danny Rosen's sensibility deeply during five years running an astronomical observatory in the Namib Desert. The poems of Ghosts of Giant Kudu infuse the landscape and music of Africa into Rosen's ultimately American, always quirky collection. 

Excerpt from Ghosts of Giant Kudu:

Oh, Man!

I, modern man,
left the forest for the plain,
but I miss the trees,
and feel hugely estranged.
