THE POETIC HILL

Adam H. Russell was born on Capitol Hill, where he lives with his wife Bartlett and Diogenes, the Philosopher Dog. A Rhodes scholar and rugby player, he graduated from Duke University and Oxford University, where he earned a doctorate in social anthropology. In this poem, he pays tribute to a stone owl that stands guard over Eastern Market.
