A poem at Writ Poetry Review

My thanks to the Siobhan and Alexis at Writ Poetry Review for selecting my poem ‘Songbirds of Saigon’ in the latest issue #4, published today. Read it and many more words by visiting the Writ Review website.

Songbirds of Saigon is an observational poem about generational and environmental change. It was written at the Tao Dan Park Bird Cafe in Ho Chi Minh City, where men have brought their prized songbirds for decades to learn new songs. It’s a tradition and daily ritual of connection for the ‘bird men of Saigon’, as much as for the birds. The poem also comments on the possibility of extinction, as the modern world closes in around the scene.
