The Wire | Land Beast by Kate Wyer



Land Beast Eye | Radio Waves

I just burned through Kate Wyer's poetic novella, Land Beast (Ceros Press). The book "is based on a true account of a female rhino who survived having her horn poached. Her calf, however, did not survive. It is told from the rhino’s point of view. In addition, there are forty watercolor illustrations (Katie Field)." All proceeds are donated to anti-poaching charities. That's pretty badass if you ask me. Check out a small excerpt below, and get your hand this beautiful little book.

The kelp branches are dark against the filtered light. They move like trees in a monsoon. They look like Chitwan trees against the sunrise. That first sun moving, strange and rabid—mist-killing, water-eating, river-hating. There are dark arms against the growing day. There are tunnels in all of us. We carry the same treatment of life, share the same vulnerabilities.
