Attendees – from undergraduates to professors – added a line to the end of the poem, but they could only see one line before their own.
Exquisite Corpse 2011
I’m a big fan of dinosaurs.
Big, Scary, and Ferocious
With one eye opened, and one blinded by fear
And different people drawing near,
the shaky hands, mouths toughing ears
My brain tells me I really want to go shopping.
Clothes, shoes, just hanging out, extreme fun!
Summer’s gift: persistence and longevity. Time slows down.
Time slows down when I’m around.
But life rushes by when you enter my mind.
to delight in little aspects; disregard the big picture. To find.
You passion, try new things, delight and in little things, and love old things…to learn
your passion, to new avenues and new alleyways may lead you…to burn
Harbingers of destruction, strolling the avenues of your mind
for the sake of convenience,
the cognitive dissonance in my mind a mere sketch of the promise of certainty;
Greeting friends travel to eternity
to spend time in the unknown; with the ones we will never forget.
This is way deep, I only wish I could write better poetry.
Don’t do that to me; so clichés.
Clichés are water buffalos
That smell like blue berries.

I’m trying to rob Robert Frost
it’s like eating string cheese
as sharp and powerful as the wind’s breeze
yet Gentle enough to embrace the delicate feather.
Which is of that of a swallow, in a hollow, under the weather.
How sorrowful that little bird is! So lost, so alone—Here comes the raven who says you’re not alone—
as he walked to Verizon and got a new phone.
He wasn’t eligible for and upgrade though, so
he became upset and yelled at his providers
He got the droid and morphed into freakozoid
then he was challenged to a game of “penis,”
Peace. Love. Death.
An image of an unimage
I am a big boy
more like a chew toy
I like to eat koi
just like when David visited Troy.
Then David went to Hawaii & invented poi:
there a he met a girl and they had a boy
and he died
before he reincarnated into a horse.
He said his last human words:
“I am slain!” and he died
but he came back in vengeance for his pride
GAME OVER Will said by his side.
Then Ben came over on his sweet Ferrari ride
then he woke up, cuz there’s no way in hell he could have a Ferrari ride
with a werwolf—yes, one ‘e,’ look it up—a werwolf like me
a werwolf ruined by an author named Stephanie
Stephanie thinks grilled cheese is nice with lots of spice.
Kang Woo loves boys made of sugar and everything nice
no I do not. Shut up Lu
I speak no Americano.
Me either Nox,
59 kids from all over the world met at a crossroad
I miss mommy, daddy, and 김치(kimchi).
The 59 crossroaders became family for life
we fight for each other with strife
and find what we want isn’t there
we learned that sometimes life isn’t fair
life is also a free fall without a parachute
you hit the ground hard at the end
individuality should never be giving in
lost in a sea of turbulent life.
My name is Captain Jay Kim.
And I’ll do anything on a whim.
Just name your price!
Take chances, take risks, just roll the dice.
Eat it like a string of taffy
and smell it like orange sherbet (really)
oh how I wish there were more, more
cookies! Delicious chocolate cookies!
Gooey and melting warm in my mouth
melting warm, like the sap of life
dripping sparse, upon the hollow being
of her moist skin, glistening with desire
she thought she was alone…
but she really wasn’t…….
madness lit within, craves crawling outside
he craved a time from long, long time ago.
Those wispy memories of candle-lit nights.
Extinguished by the midnight breath
The clichés bloom like hickies
trees fall to no one’s ears
and everyone knows that they’re the freshman trees.
