A Poem About The Parrot, Adam Lizakowski

Adam Lizakowski and The Toucan go way back...try to Issue 3. Enjoy yet another poem about birds in a magazine named after um, a bird. This one, however, shares our home territory. We may not want to be so complementary of parrots in the future.

A poem about the parrot
by Adam Lizakowski

An exotic bird -- the sun of the blue planet
you were something that I have never seen
I love you, I love you

I was too young to understand freedom
the sound of broken air is strange to my ears
I love you, I love you

Flying feathers behind bars,
a strong, hooked beak cutting
my imagination in half
I love you, I love you

How often you reminded me of myself
repeating somebody’s words
without understanding
I love you, I love you
