Blog Assignment 3-Exquisite Corpse Poem

7 Mar

Exquisite Corpse (Cadavre Exquis) is a poetry form and art developed in the 1920s among Surrealists. It is used as a visual but primarily written form. The concept was thought to have originally developed from a parlor game called Consequences, or formed by a similar means.

Call For Action

Drawing inspiration from the song “Words I Never Said ” by Lupe Fiasco and the student film by Anne Zhou on Occupy CUNY (we saw/heard in lab)  readings, the film “Soldiers without Swords” create a poem surrounding the idea of “A Call For Action” (ie..freedom fighters.). So how this works is each student will contribute (post) just one line. The poem will build has each person creates add their line.Whoever is the first to post starts off the poem. There are roughly about 50 of you combining both sections of you so this will be a relatively lengthy poem.

*****Please post your line directly to this post by clicking on comment and adding your line. This way the poem will be easier to read in class. We will record the poem next lab and I will post the final piece in the next couple/few weeks.

    Forever shall we struggle to keep our voices heard, forever shall we stand against what is wrong and fight for what is right, until the last man falls.

    May we always remember in our hearts, minds and souls that we are fighting for a better tomorrow.

    Out of the silence breaks through the tongue of knowledge to enlighten the minds of the ignorant.

    For we must spread the message that represents a whole, to those who have lost faith, who have lost their soul.

    With a set of iron fists and the need to declare your natural rights to the death we fight.

    We must always remember we have a voice, one that does not falter, as long as we all speak as one

    Only as one voice will we be strong enough to sound the battle cry for action, to bring to light the changes that must be made, for we are America

    After the passionate fire I find myself lost in the smoke searching for the clarity so we can reunite and be as one.
