Skin Deep (poem)

A Repost of my poem Skin Deep in honour of the two new Gouldian chicks that recently started to fly.

Skin Deep

God took a prized jewel
the precious gouldian finch
polishing the paint
off
a sparrow was left
the crowd
disappeared

My poem ‘Skin Deep’ was recorded for the ABC Radio National ‘Birdlands’ project in 2011  (produced by Gretchen Miller). You can listen to the very short recording here:
