Birds of Rome
The first of our press ephemera! In addition to our books, we are working with the authors we publish to create pieces for your briefest reading pleasure.
“The Birds of Rome” by Melinda Mueller is a single poem, presented as a glossy tri-fold, on living and our necessary forgetfulness in this brightest of eternal cities. Originally published in “Looking Together: Writers on Art” by the University of Washington and the Frye Art Museum, we are pleased to re-present this poem in this tidy format. We might recommend reading this poem with a glass of wine while watching the sun set and the shadows lengthen on rooftops.
