If we are to live in this world and share in its experience, we must have patience. In McLuhan's Canary, Bruce Meyer examines the questions of how we wait to find love, why we love and show courage to the people and things that are important to us, and how we find purpose in the small, commonplace, and almost insignificant things that help us to endure with dignity. In these poems, paeans to the virtue of patience, Meyer listens as the world sings to us and awakens us to the perpetuity and strength in which we live and love.
He says the sunrise over Mumbai / is goldly ancient with muezzin voices, / and his day begins as mine is ending / with moths buzzing on my window, / and the voice of a small world / crying in a dream I must bring to life.
