songbirds and grackles 
drop each
wringing meaning from white
noise utterances
epiglottal
without structure

fall to silence

pretty sure it doesn't mean anything, though I've witnessed songbird droppings on occasion

Is this a commentary on artists that use randomness as a substitute for creativity and the critics that over-interpret their work? ... or am I over-interpreting...

Actually, while I know this meant something when I wrote it, I can't remember exactly what it was. :B
I was in a linguistics course and was reading something about language evolution from limbically produced signals and how only certain types of signals have the potential to become language, and then the awkward line breaks had something to do with incorrectly parsing words and phrases from a continuous speech stream... That is to say, pretty much randomness. :D
