‘Quickly here the critics come’: Exquisite Corpse poems, Spring 2020

Here are this semester’s Creative Writing classes’ poems written in the Exquisite Corpse method.  What I love about these lines is how they were created almost randomly but have a kinda of weird logic. I like how some of these seem almost brilliant, in an obtuse way. See here for previous semesters’ poems. Punctuation was added, but the words below appear as they were in the Exquisite Corpse poems made in class recently.
