The Poop Deck

Writing Experiment

"...i am thinking about us all as the fingers of a world tender with shame & famine....i think of us as the fingers of a dying body, touching & feeling, performing the last instinct to hold & flex & let go as the crash cart stops in the hallway."

~excerpt from Sung Yim's poem, "Ode to Defeat"

WRITING EXPERIMENT: Number your page from 1-10. List ten people you remember holding hands with. Circle one. Describe that moment, the clutch, the grip, the need to hang on.
