Last flight of the owl

Judgement

We raised the old hanged man.
We drew unkindled eyes upon his gaunt
and ravished features.
We raised the old cross wood
and found a sea of faces
eager here to kill him,
the one that gave his love,
the blessed Mother Mary called her Son.

Now we face his sword,
to taste each nail of salty blood,
each finger left exposed.
Now we face his word.
The man God called his own
was treated as a fool,
and like a ghost was cast
away from Earth, his home.

Professional Reviews

The stone owl in full flight!
Peter Bird remains as one of Australia's most elusive and obscure writers. Some of his work has appeared in occassional arts journals and he has made rare appearances at folk house venues reciting poetry and playing guitar.
This is a powerful collection of pieces that are biting, profound and, ironically, humourous.
