Empty a drawer

Printer-friendly version

Toronto-based poet Hoa Nguyen asks you to empty out a drawer. Try it!


For this you need to take stock of a glove compartment, desk drawer, or general “junk drawer.” Conduct a notational catalogue of the contents, describing each item in detail. Take note of shapes, colors, textures, and emotional/other associations. No detail is too small!
