SUNDAY POETRY SESSION “FOWL LANGUAGE”

Sky’s the Limit

 

Fowl Language, Hanne Lippard, read by herself.

.

i am a bird, i am a beek without a body

i am a headless chicken, i am a peep peep tom, i am the turkey 

i fear public holidays, i fear public toilets

i fear fear

and easter hunting, i am poached eggs and scramble

i am five minutes and counting, i am sunny side up

i am the sunset siren, i am an eggless chicken

i am the anarchy canary, i am a softboiled bird

i am a peacock pagan, i am a peabrain pidgeon

i am a parrot porridge

 

repeat after me, repeat after me

pereat pereat

tereap tereap

rappot rappot

tarrop tarrop

sparrow island

pirouette pet

pothead falcon

spotted pattern

 

i am naked without knowing, featherless is fearless

fatherless fuckhead, hen mother

keeps on counting
