Poetry. SOME BIRDS WALK FOR THE HELL OF IT is the third volume of poetry and prose from artist C.R. Avery. In his take-no-prisoners style of verse and performance, Avery celebrates the virtues of the bohemian brigade, late-nite denizens of inconvenient beauty, the dissolute and the temporary, lawless black leather pioneers of innovation, and every battle scarred member of this "helpless grey sky tribe." Like a cross between Lenny Bruce and Anaïs Nin, Avery's poetry is alternately profane, brilliantly vulgar, outrageously funny and brash in its lonesome courage, unsettling, and unquestionably original.

"Audacious and astounding; 5 star"—David Burke, London Time Out

"First there were the beats... then there was Hunter S. Thompson... now there is C. R. Avery."—Luke Starr,Kruger Magazine, UK

"Avery... has created his own off-beat world of spoken word and musical soundtrack that is riveting and rewarding."—Lonesome Highway Magazine, Ireland

"a cultural magpie who's impossible to pigeon- hole"—David Kidman, Net Rhythms Magazine
