Highland Park Poetry-The Exquisite Corpse 2012

A Video of Poetry by Pamela Larson

What is The Exquisite Corpse? A surrealist game played this time via email. One line was emailed to the poet. The poet came up with 4 new lines based on that one line and returned to a central email. The last line of that poet’s 4 lines was emailed to the next poet creating a secret chain of lines. 32 poets participated and no one knew the collaborative poem until this performance. The very last line submitted was used as the title. Thank you to all that participated and to the Highland Park Library for hosting the reading. Special thanks to Jennifer Dotson for all you do for poets and poetry.
