"birds and blues"

by Collin van de Sluijs

"lessons from someone who disappeared by a river,

down in the Summer, down in the heat, some lonesome road

Sommerled, he so beautiful

everything in scimitar

the hidden

blues . . .

sitting on the old December couch

watching the garden, the sky

somewhere a mickey

of scotch malt

the quiet rest

quiet watch

i said, "why so quiet?"

he said "I am watching the hummingbird"

when i turned my head to look

the hummingbird was gone

in the bathroom



spitting blood

into the sink

we get word

one Summer

the years

of picking crops

down in the South

his suitcase found

by the river

he doesn't call

his mother anymore


a man give him

a ride

out of rough country . . .)


i sit

watching the garden, the sky

the quiet rest

the quiet watch

years and . . .

the ruby hummingbird

comes to the one

red flower

in the garden

in the sunlight

if you sit

long enough,


you can hold the day

in your hand

the quiet rest

the quiet watch


as one day in your hand

on a good day

you begin to lose

yourself in traffic

in the poem

close, sweet and blue

poem . . .

blue bottle

road . . ."

The New Age Renaissance Republic White Flag Manifesto

"we surrender . . . now give us what we want"

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
- from The New Colossus
(inscribed on the Statue of Liberty)
by Emma Lazarus
