From the spewing smokestacks of corporate culture run amok to charting the course of an oncoming dusk, the poems in Mr. Bluebird bring eco-poetry and urban pastoral to exciting new places. 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. These wide-ranging poems feature a cast of characters that includes St. Francis of Assisi, St. Augustine, Bart Simpson, Sal Mineo, Paul Bowles, Gertrude Stein, Mr. Eggroll, Mr. Chips, and a tough blue rose named Mr. Bluebird.

Yet nature poems form the core of the book, portraying a New Yorker with a complex, emotionally exhausting life (in one poem the city resembles an astonishing array of psychoactive pill bottles) who aspires to Basho's pure barefoot walk among the trees.
