CA gave me blessings and permission to use A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon for my next project. Based on the (soma)tic instruction on page 11, one should read the favorite book of poetry backwards, word-for-word. Even the titles. However, when I read line-by-line, I thought of the different metaphorical things one might find. For example: "blackberries / homeless on the park's blue" (Amy King, p87). With permission, this could be another write-through exploration, finding how forced metaphor via line-by-line going upward can create new surprises. Then try word-by-word in reverse.
Anyway, the new project is underway. Thanks, CA! You are awesome!
