The Near-Sighted Monkey

Dear Unthinkable Mind Class,

In blizzard conditions remember Emily Dickinson’s Poem # 530.

What would that poem mean if I told you it was Jackson Jackson’s favorite poem?

What would it mean if I told you it was Jo Ann Beard’s favorite poem? She’s the person who wrote the story I read to you yesterday, "The Fourth State of Matter"

What would it mean if I told you it was the shooter’s favorite poem?

What if I told you all of them had it memorized and turned to it often?

Professor Old Skull turns to that poem often and wonders how so few lines can hold so many different views. Is it a prism?

Above, your homework pages for the Unthinkable Mind Class #8 which includes a quote from an Alice Monroe story called “Child’s Play”.

Poem #530 seems to contain it as well. How?

Where ever you are, I hope you are warm.  (If you need it, the  link to our fireplace video is here.)

I’m looking forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday.

Prof. O.S.
