if yesterday was about turkey feather x’s, today is about y-shaped twigs. which, i can report, do not fit themselves easily end to end into attractive and complex weblike circle patterns. they elbow each other. they fidget. they do not sit still. they do not take direction. they talk back. they pass notes and giggle. this is as close to order as was reached today, in mrs. hoffman’s room 859.
