Note from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle Finder:
I love this illustration by Amber Seegmiller of the bird’s nest girl! Humans can get close to our feathered friends if they spend enough quiet time in their territory. Perhaps our Providence poet was right on track by staying silent with a book – maybe the next time they meet the bird will come a few steps closer…
A Flock of Migratory Birds on Your Arm
Missed Connections in Rhode Island
Yesterday evening at the E&O, you strolled in with a friend and a flock of birds on your shoulder.
I asked if they were flying towards us or away, and you left it up to me.
Soon enough, you were lost in conversation w/your associate, and I was lost in the thick book I brought.
You were like some classical aquiline goddess carved out of marble or alabaster, and I wasn’t feeling too social, numbed from reading about child soldiers in Colombia.
I can’t say as I expect to hear back from you, but I’d kick myself if I didn’t post this.
