By John Lillison

The poem “Pointy Birds” appears in the 1983 movie, The Man with Two Brains, starring Steve Martin as eminent brain surgeon Dr Michael Hfuhruhurr, and Kathleen Turner as Dolores Benedict, the woman he hits with his car, performs brain surgery on, and falls in love with.

Dr Hfuhruhurr reads the poem to Dolores as she recovers in hospital after her operation:
