Yaddo Bit

Yesterday, after a reading at West House, all the poets agreed to take part in an Exquisite Corpse project: a collaborative sestina! Each poet was assigned one word, and s/he will come up with six lines ending in assigned word. I was assigned the word "black." The seventh poet will write the envoi.

The six lines are due today at dinner. Cathy Bowman and Alessandra Lynch will cut and paste the lines into a sestina.

I am completely jealous of you collaborating on a sestina! I have never been able to write a successful sestina in my life---and now you get to work on one with Ms. Bowman.
