Nestless Birds

Written by Andres Ehin

Translated from the Estonian by Ilmar Lehtpere 

Narrated by Bill Wolak




there where the world’s most eloquent speech 

is taking shape in the head of a mute 


there where the aura is so dense 

that it grates pain into a white powder 


there where raw soft inklings 

in the convolutions of the brain 

ripen into a sturdy tower of thought 


there where a rainbow 

becomes a pier for longings 


there where the birds have no nests 

yet can fly  

in one swoop
