Observe the World
Confessional Poetry Class* 1) Go for a 30-minute walk and observe the world around you, quietly and alone(if possible) Come back to your computer or desk and write about what you saw and heard and other sensory experiences in as much detail as possible, without your own commentary–i.e. the bird I saw was the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen. 2) Listen to the poem The Double Image by Anne Sexton https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/53110/the-double-image If your family were to have your portrait done, would that portrait be different from how you see yourself? Explain as fully as you can.
