Too-Fast Spring Birds

Too-Fast Spring Birds
55 sec / digital / silent / 2012

A video in anticipation of As Long As Trees Last, a new book of poems by Hoa Nguyen, published by Wave Books (August 2012). Edited to an audio recording of the piece by the poet.


Love the days       You
Crave       a crown of bowls

as in     “She dances like a Bomb”
Fossil piece and dust on me

these things that dust in words

Too fast
a bird that goes and since a net

I hide or flee
who finds the fossil pieces

Beech tree white

a candy for a hearth
as long as trees last

a strong thing
