This poem explores the seemingly ignored issue of abuse towards men in today’s world. In this moment, a man (a Rock Dove) is verbally abused by his girlfriend (the Falcon) and leaves him to “die” in an apartment in Queens. This poem attempts to overlay the images of birds fighting and that of a struggling relationship. – Zachary Lavoie.
