Abstract: The Home Lives of Wild Birds are original poems by Chloe Anne Campbell, in completion of a Masters of Fine Arts thesis. They examine the body, both living and dead, as well as its absence. Section One is a triptych of three burial scenes. Section Two is a long poem narrating the death of the speaker's brother using physicist Hugh Everett's Many Worlds Theory. Section Three follows the speaker's family after the death of her brother. Section Four narrates the arc of an ultimately failed romantic relationship. Section Five is focused on the speaker's self-reflection in adulthood.
