Lisa Hiton is Poet of the Week on The Paris-American











Brava to Lisa Hiton, who is this week’s featured poet on The Paris-American!  From the poem:

Tail plumes stretched like sharp swords, then recoiling. I followed it thinking it was
a kookaburra. With every inch I advanced, it changed

its song—unrecognizable cries, stolen from the throats of others. Liar.

Read the rest of the poem, “The Lyrebird,” here.

Congratulations, Lisa!
