8/30: Ari Banias

Today we are spending some time with the plants, reading "A Symmetry" by Ari Banias


This poem feels un-afterable, in the best way. The movement and energy of the poem feels so rooted to the speaker's reality. What I want us to do today is focus on the line "The magnolia before it blooms stands bare"


Choose a piece of nature – a plant, animal, mountain, etc.. And write of it in the moment before its transformation, its moment of becoming the recognizable version of itself.


The days are stretching, and so are we!
