Allow me to belatedly direct your attention to a excerpts of Stephen Cope's amazingly inventive, beautiful, allusion-packed creole manuscript, Conference of the Birds. Robin Tremblay McGaw recently posted a pdf of this work over at X Poetics. Highly recommended. If you like, check out our latest issue of Wheelhouse Magazine (Issue 9), which likewise plucks from ...the Birds. Cope's podcast of the same name (rare music from around the world), which is intimately tied up in the structures and concerns of the poems, is also of considerable interest. Link to that website is at the bottom of the links list to the right, i.e., keep scrollin' friend.
