Description"I don't know what it is I'm supposed to do. I don't know what the tools are. I don't have the manual." Toward the end of a difficult battle with cancer, Jay Rossier, author of Living with Chickens, compiled this collection of poems. These poems wrestle with the gristle of life, from a child hesitant to pick up a kitten, "its loose bag of skin, the bones / and organs sliding around under your fingers," to frustrations with illness, "Living to me now / means keeping to myself." Each one looks life in the eye unafraid to lose the staring contest, but determined to speak.

About the Author
Jay Rossier (1961-2012), author of "Living With Chickens," was a skilled man and had multiple careers throughout his life. A freelance writer for "Chickens" magazine, Jay was the local guy people sought out with questions in regard to their birds. He had a passion for animals. As a young man, following in the footsteps of his native Vermont ancestors, he enjoyed working on a dairy farm in the Midwest. A soap-maker, a Waldorf teacher, a singer in the Thetford Chamber Singers, an editor, a computer consultant, an artist, a traveler, a mathematician, a baker, Jay was a true Renaissance man, a kind and gentle soul with a perpetual twinkle in his eye, a seeker of all that is subtle and interesting and beautiful in life.
