Discussion: The Postman on His Motorcycle

Discussion: Chapter 3 Start Where You Are last exercise

Think of someone you see regularly in passing but do not know well, such as your mail carrier, barrista or neighbour.  Write a poem that imagines what his life might be like:

  • Who does he love?
  • What has he lost?
  • What does his pajamas look like?
  • What are his aspirations?
  • What does he eat for breakfast.
from smh.com.au
So I focused on the mailman.  In my neck of the woods they zip around on small Kawasaki’s.  I tried to do something innocuous but it turned dark as I wrote it.
