The Bathrobe Series – Episode 1: Crayola Mandala

This is the first episode in "The Bathrobe Series," a series of video poems and prompts. These are poems of my own which I read and then, talking to you, suggest ways you might begin to write. If you want to have a sense of what set this idea in motion, have a look at The Bathrobe Series: An Introduction.   I talk about the personal connection to writing in your bathrobe and link it to the art of Jim Dine and the wardrobe of Julian Schnabel. But basically it's about writing in a state of relative comfort.
