Joshua Bird is a lapse within the fickle walls of introspection. On his better days he dresses like your common house elf. He considers his birth certificate a red herring. Call this a fourth wall and he’ll show you the world.
Joshua Bird remains this side of the verso/recto duality for narrative continuity. He continues to saturate the I of his I using a salvaged IBM Selectric II typewriter. His ontological speaking voice is returned to the tangible. If pressed, he would begrudgingly admit his work is overly fixated on themes of absurdism, isolation, repetition and the inevitable destruction of the poet-persona. He is currently focusing on large-scale projects in lieu of navel-gazing through singular poems.
Joshua Bird lives on the outskirts of Tampa, FL.
