week 1. may or may not be about constructing something!
1. be an animal
take an animal you’re familiar with or have spent some time looking at it. now describe it. not how you feel about it (no first person pronouns here!). and no anthropomorphizing! be the animal. consider james dickey’s the heaven of animals. remember negative capability. watch this.
now, be the animal. make the transition from description to moving around in something else’s skin.
For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry.
For he is the servant of the Living God, duly and daily serving him.
For at the first glance of the glory of God in the East he worships in his way.
For is this done by wreathing his body seven times round with elegant quickness.
For then he leaps up to catch the musk, which is the blessing of God upon his prayer.
For he rolls upon prank to work it in.
For having done duty and received blessing he begins to consider himself.
For this he performs in ten degrees. christopher smart
