The Word Made Flesh
The blue bird, drawn by my best friend, is representative of  Charles Bukowski’s poem blue bird which begins, “There is a blue bird in my heart that wants to get out, but I’m too tough for him. I say, stay in there, I’m not going to let anybody see you.” and ends, “I haven’t quite let him die, and we sleep together like that with our secret pact and it’s nice enough to make a man weep, but I don’t weep, do you?”
The bird, similarly, represents Kilgore Trout’s bird in Kurt Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions. Trout decides to grant his bird three wishes, so he does for him three things that the bird himself cannot do. He first opens the cage, and the bird flies to the window. Second, he opens the window. The bird flies back to the cage, and Trout closes the cage for the last wish. He says something to the extent of, “That’s the best use of three wishes I’ve ever seen.” Showing that there is no point in living if you have nothing to hope for and no goals to meet.
"We are healthy only to the extent that our ideas are humane." Is written on Trout’s tombstone in Breakfast of Champions. This is seen shortly after the idea that humans are robots - and that everyone exists to stimulate one for a test.
