““birdfeeder” is a darkly poetic monologue... Chapman's prose is haunting, beautifully written, poignant, and elegiac... I cannot spoil the plot of the monologue without ruining any element of surprise. I can tell you that it's about a love between two people that transcends the body and is truly moving and disturbing. ”
