  • Product Description

      June 2023 Tea Towel: Bird on a Wire. Simple Cento #1:

      Dear T.S. Elliot,
      I am not sure that
      "April is the cruelest month."
      Any unfulfilled promise is cruel.

      Dear Emily Dickinson,
      I believe you that
      "Hope is a thing with feathers."
      My crow boys caw me awake
      warning of approaching predators.

      Dear William Turner,
      Is it true that "birds of
      a feather stick together"
      like you wrote in 1545?
      Who are they protecting?
      Now birds of a squad
      struggle together?

      Dearest poet, songwriter,
      Leonard Cohen,
      "Bird on a Wire"
      your 1968 manifesto.

      Your testament
      to live your life your way.
      Lovingly, openly, honestly.

      Telephone wires
      relics of the past.
      Will we now live
      like birds on the wireless?
      Will we be as true
      to ourselves as you were?

      Each towel is wood blocked by hand. Our high-quality, supple linen holds up extremely well, growing softer and more absorbent with each wash. You get a modern heirloom and work of art at a better cost than most machine-printed linen towels.
