Issue Two: Canary Found by Paul South


This is one of my more playful pieces. If you can’t tell already, most of my poetry comes from my own day-to-day experiences.

I found a canary one day, and at that time I was strenuously denying to my friends that I wrote poetry, claiming that I just wrote “creative stuff.” This poem was a playful summation of what was going through my head that day.
