Bird Lore

Best single line I’ve seen in a while.

Don McKay. “Chickadee Encounter” in Apparatus

zippers, quicklings,

Darn smart all by itself and very intelligent in its context of the poem’s conclusion that it triggers…

zippers, quicklings,
may you inherit earth, may you
perch at the edge of the shipwreck of state,
on the scragged uneconomical alders,
and chat.

Makes you want to join the party.

And so for day 2178
