Friday the Thirteenth!

It doesn't have to be about slasher killer thrillers and horror movies.

You could consider blackbirds instead.

Wallace Stevens found thirteen ways of doing so in his beautiful, eerie and meditative poem:

Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird

The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds.
It was a small part of the pantomime.

Think of thirteen ways you could consider a certain person, creature, idea or object.
