Reptilia (or, how we looked for form) is a collection of poetry broken into two titular parts : "Reptilia" and "(or, how we looked for form)" -- which are subsequently broken into two and five parts, respectively. While the two main chapters have independent motifs, this collection as a whole meditates on metaphysical, existential, and material philosophy; human nature, relationships, interspecies connections, and mythology; ecology, biology, and physics; as well as pop culture and the arts. It does this through use of language, metalanguage, research, and interdisciplinary juxtaposition. The ultimate goal of this text is to subtly map conscious and unconscious human existence
