Bird Silence Book Description: The poems in Matthew Roth's Bird Silence crackle with formal and imaginative energy. Roth explores topics as various as the death of a flock of Bohemian Waxwings, the etymology of the word "hearse," and the inner life of a mortician's instruments. In poems that marry the strange and the beautiful, Roth explores our desire for connection and consolation.
