Birds — hardly a new subject for poets. Flight, freedom, serenity, ascension. The metaphorical potential is bountiful.

A concrete river — industrial, urban, and teaming with wildlife — a literal paradox known as the Los Angeles River running through the middle of one of the world’s largest cities.

In his two recently published poems, “Barred White Noise and Blue” and “For God or Divinity or Something Else You Want It to Be,”  Carl Robinette mines his experience of this paradox for its musical energy.

Both poems were published in Entropy Magazine’s “The Birds” column and are Carl’s debut work as a poet. In the first, the speaker attempts to reach out to an unseen and hooting owl. In the second, the speaker contemplates the divinity of language as it relates to birds.

Both can be read for free here.
