To those of you in attendance on Day One of our class, thank you. To those of you who may have missed or need a reminder about the day's homework, see below.
1. Books: Rhyme's Reason by John Hollander. Ghost of Fashion by Lesley Jenike.
2. Homework: Write an epistolary poem to an abstraction. Use as many concrete images as you can, including at least one image from each of the five senses. The poem should be at least ten lines long. Use at least one metaphor and one simile. (When the moon hits your eye like an atomic pie...)
Have fun and see you tomorrow.
