    Hey guys,

    Super sorry, but I can’t read today. I have to unexpectedly go up to DC for a job interview. I’m really sorry, I would have liked to be there! Good luck!!!

    Re: Are we doing this as everyone will read one poem and then if we have time go back around?

    Yes. I was hoping we could go in order of the syllabus. This means
    Bishop: Covenant, Upma, Tricia
    Beats: Alison
    Ginsberg: Adriana, Sarah
    Brooks: Ty
    Confessionals: Julia
    Plath: Catherine
    Vollmer: Molly
    Komunyakaa: Courtney

    You each can read for 2.5 minutes total. Let’s do this:
    -straight line in the front of the mansion in this order
    -we each read one poem
    -when/if time permits, then READ a second poem.
    Good? Text 703 501 5410 if you have pending questions.

    Yikes, I freaking dropped the ball on this, y’all. Sorryyyyyy

    I would like to read “Returning the Borrowed Road” by Komunyakaa. 🙂 And if there’s time, “Footnote to Howl” by Ginsberg.

    Sorry I took a year to respond to this!

  4. Catherine Mohr says:

    I put this on the doc, but will we each read one poem and then go back around the circle for our second if we have time?

  5. Erica says:

    I don’t think I’ll be reading anything, I’m too chicken, but I will definitely be there to suport everyone else!

    The google docs isn’t working for me, but I would like to read Vollmer’s “To a Lamp” (I think that’s the title).

    For some reason the google doc isn’t working for me .. so I will post here that I want to read Ginsberg’s America.

    I think I will read Yusef Komunyakaa’s poem that we read in class today….I’m sorry I don’t have the book with me, “Carriage?” About the rewinding??

    If you need a second, I’d like to read a Plath.
