The Unbearable Oddness of Being: A Curious Image Juxtaposed with Some Lines from a 1974 Margaret Atwood Poem

 

Shall I tell you the secret

and if I do, will you get me

out of this bird suit?

 

I don’t enjoy it here

squatting on this island

looking picturesque and mythical

 

         –Margaret Atwood (from “Siren Song”)
