Subject: EXQUISITE CORPSE WEB SITE
I have a friend who set up a site that has some interesting poetry stuff. There is a game called "Exquisite Corpse" that yields similar "random" 88 poetry. The game involves passing around a piece of papr which is folded thereby occluding what has been written so far...each person adds a line, folds it, passes it, etc... He has put some of the poems on the site and there are some really interesting ones. The site is http://www.halfcleveland.com/main.html. If you get that and click on "corpse" you will learn about the game and then be able to enter "corpse." The manifesto is pretty funny, as well as the descrption of the "half cleveland" (a style in the 70's of wearing a white patent leather belt--the full cleveland is belt + SHOES). Most of the poems are neat...I really liked "dawn", "jellyfilled", "kandinsky", "leftovers", "moved" and "utensil".
When you have some time to kill--enjoy!
