40 gestures, 40 days, 40 years

Seeds that survive being digested first by birds have a greater chance at germinating, growing best far from the site that they were eaten. Bird-dispersed seeds are generally red or black.

Bird gatherings go by enough names to make a found poem: charm, congregation, flock, scold, dissimulation, flight, tidings, sord, watch, murder, bevy, aerie, clamor, skein, wedge.

This cluster of doves strafed the community bulletin board outside Blackbird Bakery today, and then some disbanded. Public Art Works was deeply moved by all of the humans involved. If anyone has discovered the seed their bird was carrying and has found their way here, please feel free to post a comment (anonymously if you like).
