Poetry For Dummies
I have an idea of reading the book Poetry for Dummies in it's entirety while engaged in a physical task. A portion of my work is performance based, pushing the body to its perceived limit. In these moments of extreme physical stress I channel the beauty of spoken word poetry. However, I am well aware that I do not have an extensive poetry background. So, reading this beginner book on poetry is a gestural act acknowledging my novice status while committing acts (working out) that I feel quite knowledgeable/comfortable partaking in.
