Cadavre Exquis--Subterranean Poets

In English, Exquisite Corpse, a poetry game/technique created by Surrealists in the 1920s and was a French cafe pastime of Henry Miller. There are various ways to "play" but our way is that each person writes 4 lines, folds the paper down to only reveal the last line, the next person writes 4 lines, and passes it to the next person until the page is full.

Click HERE to see some of our work--Subterranean Poets--the brainchild of one Miss CC Sheffield. Takes place a hop skip and a jump away on Wednesdays in the library room of 86--Rudolph Valentino's old speakeasy. Its just good therapy. Some free-writing. Easy fun.
