‘Aviarium’ is a study of birdlife. In these fourteen poems, each focusing on a particular species of bird—from the hummingbird to the bone-eating vulture—swift and simple gestures are elevated: a folding wing; entrails descending down a canopy. Published by Fivehundred places, founded in 2012 by Jason Dodge. On the cover of each book is a dead scissor by Paul Elliman.
