Seven-Star Bird: Poems

David Daniel explores a city-entire lives-swept clean off the map in this haunting debut

And swallows twitter and skirt the dusk,
We lie within the wreckage of the stars-
The moon spill, our planets' pull-this sad machine.
--from "Seven-Star Bird"

You will not find Friendship, Texas; it now lies at the bottom of a lake of floodwater,
Paperback, 72 pages
