Two dead birds


Ink and watercolor illustration and poem. Personal project.

“I saw two dead birds yesterday, one behind the other. 
Right after the flood, as harbingers of a silent day.

One of the birds was cover by ants. Black, red and calm. 
Like a spiral made of root tones, like his voice on a sudden call.

They were just the soundtrack of a waiting list after my short nap.

The birds, the ants, the dead.”
