By Robert Herbert
Buzzard pecks the glass pane that frames outsides.
He is pretty pissed about something.
I let him in, he beaksnaps my smoking jacket.
“Say something, you stupid bird, bogle me
less at such an hour as this, the gay sun
is still to galivant this way and you
should be nesting.” He perches on the shelf
for the poetry books and squawks, livid,
stomping now like a trooper. I could kill
him, and as I guage this ill, it becomes clear,
he is comparing the vague emptiness
of my bookshelves to a totalitarian regime.
He wants me to flail freestyle for freedom,
to scorn my propaganda in a false past,
to write better poems, that maybe outlast
links I like, I post, on Facebook, about David Graeber.

Meet the artist Thursday, May 12 @ 7:00
This series of paintings is inspired by the rich food culture of New Orleans and south Louisiana where I grew up. The plastic babies I depict are known as ‘King Cake Babies.’ They are placed inside King Cakes, a cinnamon filled pastry-like cake eaten during Mardi Gras season. Tradition has it that whoever gets the baby throws the next party. Growing up, we kids made a game of finding the baby in the cake. more…
