Thirteen Ways of Killing a Scrub-Jay

"'Thirteen Ways of Killing a Scrubjay' is a prose-poem by Richard Holeton in the form of a blog that explores the theme of modern violence. The work is a 'playful' response to the Wallace Stevens' poem 'Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird' (Holeton). The journal entries detail ludicrously gruesome and elaborate plans to murder the birds: from poison pellets to cyanide darts to water cannons." -- from the Electronic Literature Directory
