I Give You The "Bird"

Poem to a Homeless Man 
in an Orange Shirt, Singing

YOU’RE A RARE BIRD OF PARADISE
Caught in a living hell,
singing songs to broken skies,
standing on pieces that fell.

I admire your tunes and verse
I’ve heard angels
who sang much worse.

Hey, bird, keep on singing,
all orange and blue -
Maybe the sky
will fall up for you!

Noel, I love seeing the work you did in Austin, and I like the poem, too. I have such fond memories of our "gang" at Turtle Crow Studio.
