And This Dead Bird Belongs To Me (New Spoken Word Poem)

*NEW SPOKEN WORD POEM*

I want to pay tribute to this quote from Elizabeth Strout, whose words were the inspiration and cornerstone of this poem: “But I think I know so well the pain we children clutch to our chests, how it lasts our whole lifetime, with longings so large you can’t even weep. We hold it tight, we do, with each seizure of the beating heart: This is mine, this is mine, this is mine.”
