Maybe your fear is rooted in childhood? Or maybe you just don’t like them, which is fine. I love birds. The sense of disconnection that they can achieve just by flapping their wings. I’m fascinated by them. As much as I’m fascinated by wolves, bears and deers. Fishes, mice, dogs and cats. All animals. My poetry has plenty of them. We think we rule them because of technology, but we are just another species of 2 legged beasts.
