The Library of Birds





a bird is a message to future birds

a bird understands the world by being a bird

the bird is really two birds—or many

it is useful to be a bird, if you are a bird

flight is one way of explaining

living—and not dying—is another

future birds are the written language of birds

the new bird has the absence of teeth in the old bird’s mouth

a fish is a bird because it is useful

a fish is moonlight underwater
