I'd like the above sonnet to move. So ideally you know the answer--it is a widely known answer in disability circles--and then you're it. You write yr own "Tag, You're It" sonnet, same form, same first line, different tags, different code to answer. Whoever answers that, etc.
Tagging people I think might be up for this challenge @SandraBeasley @sagrossman @SF_Montgomery @authorKQ @gm_palmer @cyreejarelle only crips/disabled poets @CadeyLadey @jesilfa @travisclau yes you have to know answer to 1st one b/c it will lead you b/c cyborg magic
Need this to tag #CyborgSonnet so I can find it again later

I wrote this for all of us in #HigherEd absolutely any of us. Please use it. How? Send to upper admin if you're concerned about teaching in-person. But what did I leave out of this essay? I'm about to tell you. First the essay with my thanks to @truthout…
1. Students themselves are electing to go virtual in my classes. They are just doing it. And that's fine by me. My classes are, at present, in-person and asynchronous online.
2. A common myth in pandemic pedagogy is that online synchronous learning is better than asynchronous online learning. We don't have to reinvent the wheel here. #RhetComp has already done studies on the benefits of asynchronous online learning.

Do you have to do anything while you are in bed? No. Emphatically no. You do not. I am just antsy and getting used to the situation. I am not saying "be productive from bed." I do not endorse that shit. Be you.

Truly wtf is going on in this book I'm reading. LIVES OF WIVES by Laura Riding Jackson. Can I get an assist from #Modernists

"Let us now move quickly to Athens. Aristotle is back and married to Pythias."
I shall hold a poll. What is going on in this book?
"Pythias wld have liked to hide herself away in the boat in which he was sailing & then surprise him when they were out at sea. But she had much to arrange. For one thing, the seizing of the city's jeweled regalia ... Instead, she sent on board that famous statue of herself."
