Quote of the Day (Edward Hirsch, on a ‘Boy With a Headset’)

“He is a fifteen-year-old in the city—no more, no less—
but I imagine him as a colorful unnamed bird
warbling his difference from the robins and sparrows
and scissoring past the vendors on every corner.”—American poet Edward Hirsch, “Boy With a Headset,” The New Yorker, Oct. 8, 2004
