Ted Kooser was out there in the Nebraska heartland, in the landscape he loves, on the 62 acres of it he owns and monitors with what he calls "wolf vision" for late-breaking news from the natural world. Birds, spiders, coyotes with curled lips; moths so relaxed they fall off ledges, forgetting that they can fly. The way a snake moves: "All it knows is behind it already / nothing it knows is ahead." Small observations that Kooser transforms in the early morning hours into poems that he imagines few people will ever read.
