Here’s a poem from our old friend Lucien Zell, it’s from his latest collection Bright Secrets and is entitled Human-Centric.


We are appalling human-centric:
The birds don’t know a thing about
Our Shakespears, our Rimbauds
But don’t suppose them ignorant!
We don’t know the poetry they do!

The poetry of flight…..
Of landing on a bridge in a city
And then floating into a park and then on and on
Into the wilderness to wake at dawn and soar up
Into a perfect view of every sunrise,
Every sunset.

Why care about beautiful words
When you can have their meanings without them?
