The resonance of this image grows through each section of the book as Hahn skillfully employs theme and variation, counterpoint and mirroring techniques.

The ibis first appears as part of an illusion, the disappearing object in a magician’s trick, which then evokes the greatest disappearing act of all—death—where there are no tricks to bring about a reappearance. The rich complexity multiplies as the second section focuses on a disappearing lady and a dramatic final section brings together the bird and the lady in their common plight—both caged by their mortality, their assigned time and role.  All of the illusions fall away during this brilliant denouement as the two voices share a dialogue on the power of metaphor as the very essence of poetry.bird trick ivIt’s all about disappearance.About a bird in a cagewith a mirror, a simple twiston the handle at the sidethat makes it come and goat the magician’s insistence.It’s all about innocence.It’s all about acceptance.It’s all about compliance.It’s all about deference.It’s all about silence.It’s all about disappearance.
