Mr. Bluebird, the second collection of poetry from award-winning author Gerry Gomez Pearlberg, explores the intersections between ecology, the imagination, urban nature, lesbian nature, and the nature of the human heart. The book is as much a cry of sorrow in the face of the biological holocaust as a celebration of the wild creatures and places that remind us of what sanity looks and feels like.
