tues / ack my head aches / sherwin bitsui day in lit 101s / more rain / tus


i do have a headache goodness goodness.

today in lit 101s we switched genres to poetry. perfect cause we had sherwin bitsui (navajo poet) visit our lil pima nw campus. the individual poems in class might have been really difficult & confusing to first time contemporary poetry readers (they were difficult...yep. but also enjoyed in their abstraction), but i feel his reading & discussion of his work made everything gel. he gives a good reading. kind of closes his eyes & works from memory. very sacred feel to it. during the q & a someone asked how he knew his book was done. he said it was "done in 07" but not officially "done" til after it came out & he read it to his people on the reservation up in northern arizona, & then also when he read it to himself & aloud to the land in the canyon de chelly. lovely answer.

nap time yes.
