I believe this poem relates to the chapter "The Myriad Leaves of Words" because there is a merging story between nature and human. The line about the black bird is interesting considering that the black bird is an intelligent bird. There seems to be an skeptical emphasis on money but the line about the black bird assures that everything will work out.
So I kind of understood indirection to be sort of metaphorical speak or a way of writing a poem in which emotions are understood but not explicitly stated. I chose this poem because it seems to be using phrases like "When the city is rotting" and "Feathered language / Heavy as freedom" to convey emotion without explicitly stating what that emotion is.
