The Rare Bird Recovery Protocol by David Gilbert
Loss, legacy, fatherhood, relationships, mental health and the natural world intertwine across this first full collection from poet, nonfiction author and activist, David Gilbert. The Rare Bird Recovery Protocol explores the fragilities and epiphanies of a life lived with all the senses open. Lucid and achingly poignant, there is nonetheless a thread of strength, as strong and elastic as spider-silk, running through these poems. These accessible, humane poems are layered with meaning that resonates after reading, demanding to be returned to.
