From the BU Creative Writing Blog:
Brava to Lisa Hiton, who is this week’s featured poet on The Paris-American! From the poem:
Tail plumes stretched like sharp swords, then recoiling. I followed it thinking it was
a kookaburra. With every inch I advanced, it changed
its song—unrecognizable cries, stolen from the throats of others. Liar.
Read the rest of the poem, “The Lyrebird,” here.
