Riff Raff, our poetry parrot-in-residence, likes to keep busy. Typing up poems on my touchscreen phone is one way our bird keeps from getting bored. Here is the latest piece, which I have titled “Spaces”:
I make no changes to Riff Raff’s poetry; our parrot makes all marks him/herself (with conures, you can’t tell gender based on appearance!), and my phone does the rest.
P.S. If you’d like to see more content from The Quilliad Press, please consider backing our Kickstarter! In addition to parrot poetry, we post small press book reviews, artist profiles, and coverage of local arts and literary events. We also publish a literary and arts journal, The Quilliad, and are planning a line of chapbooks.
