I Sing to That Bird Knowing He Won't Sing Back
I Sing to That Bird Knowing He Won't Sing Back | Marina Carreira
1 post | 1 to read
Inspired by fado, Marina Carreira's debut chapbook, I Sing to That Bird Knowing He Won't Sing Back, conjures up and tangles with the mighty Fate as muse. From ruminations on such historical characters as Lizzie Borden, Sylvia Plath, and Ins de Castro, to its odes to mothers and sardines, rustic villages and gritty cities, I Sing to That Bird... is a poetry collection that blends myth with memory, highlighting and exploring geographical and spiritual space, sexuality and love in its inception stages, the bittersweet ties to immigrant family, culture and history and their relationship to the heart. Written both to the beat and viewpoint of this traditional Portuguese soul-folk music, I Sing to That Bird Knowing He Won't Sing Back which is as nihilistic as it is hopeful in its adoration and disturbance of life's abstractions.
