About the Book Bird in Four Parts
The beak sings finds words for silence fills in spaces where longing might explode
The wing flies finds a way to escape offers freedom to the whole body thinks to rise above a concrete realm
The eye pierces sees the hole in the universe where things leak out where we will all go when this is finished when we have seen our last video eaten our last burger
The feather floats, after the collision of bird and building, of heart and highrise, slowly, painfully sinking to earth
