The Birdhouse

THE BIRDHOUSE

The Birdhouse is a novella about caged birds and human bondage. To the outside world, the Birdhouse looks like a fairy tale castle, but behind the basement door lies an underground prison. Here, Mister hatches his scheme to cage a mated pair of every kind of bird in the world. Mister keeps everything under lock and key, especially his family. This is the story of their struggle to break free.

AS SEEN ON TV

As Seen on TV is a collection of poems that meditate on the television as a deeply spiritual medium, wherein human fears and desires play out in a constant, repetitive loop.
