ISSUE:  Summer 2016

Consider the bowerbird and his obsession
of blue, and then the island light, the acacia,
the grounded beasts. Here, the iron smell of blood,
the sweet marrow, fields of grass and bone.

And there, the bowerbird.
Watch as he manicures his lawn, puts in all placesĀ 
a bit of blue, a turning leaf. And then,
how the female finds him,
lacking. All that blue for nothing.
