These visual poems are mixed-media collages that use source material from the following books: The MacMillan Wild Flower Book (1954), Gray’s Anatomy (1974), Webster’s Unified Dictionary and Encyclopedia (1961), and The Compleat Farmer: A Compendium of Do-It-Yourself, Tried and True Practices for the Farm, Garden, and Household (1975). They each accompany textual poems in two brief series that are written in conversation with two films: Jonathan Demme's The Silence of the Lambs and Ridley Scott's Alien.

Lindsay Lusby is the author of two chapbooks, Blackbird Whitetail Redhand (Porkbelly Press, forthcoming 2017) and Imago (dancing girl press, 2014), and the winner of the 2015 Fairy Tale Review Award in Poetry, judged by Joyelle McSweeney.
