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.
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.
