Bodie or Bust

Poets of Bodie: Adam Smith

For the Bodie Poetry Project I have been assigned the persona of the Dandy, which I take some offense to as a term. I think part of the assignment of this role is tied to my love of alcohol, fucking, and swearing. Learning cards should be fun. And I look forward to shooting stuff.

I don’t know much about Bodie and haven’t done much writing, beyond literary analysis, in years. I love learning new things and look forward to researching the specifics of the era, my persona, and the peoples of the town. I’ve been drinking whisky lately as part of my research, but can’t seem to get into it. I may end up sticking to getting drunk on whisky as a simple conceptual understanding and draw from past experience about the subtle distinctions between the different kinds of drunkeness.

My idea of camping involves a hotel near some sort of wilderness. This would include any hotel in Las Vegas since the entire city is in the middle of the desert. I don’t have much experience with Ghost towns or living without contemporary amenities. I think I’ve been to Calico once or twice, and I’ve seen all of Clint Eastwood’s spaghetti westerns. I’m fairly fluid with the terms by which I approach things, with a tendency to give parity to everything I consider valuable.
