Transatlantic is the new novel from Colum McCann. It comes out soon, but lucky bookseller me, I got to read a free early reading copy. His novel Dancer, a novel about Rudolf Nureyev, told in many voices, is among my favorites. I wasn't trying to find a poem, but perhaps inspired by recent projects by Sarah Sloat and these Eliot erasure poems by Jeremy Halinen, this "poem" jumped out at me from a page of Transatlantic:
A flock of starlings--
hard-looking men in gray suits,
on the steps of the church.
