Magpie 65


He gazes at the birds
In his hand.

He wonders.

What has nature wrought?

He thinks.

This is all that life means.

Birds . . .

In the hand.

  2. What if they poop?
    Should I feed them?
    Are they warm enough?
    What do I do when they molt?

  5. To me this is talking about our responsibility to the natural world - because after all it's what life really IS.

  15. Excellent theater of the absurd! Remember Beckett's Waiting for Godot, two men sitting on a park bench waiting for Godot (who never shows)?
    "This is all that life means."
