Collective Poem

This is a poem created collectively using Magnetic Poetry on 15 January, 2010.

The players were Martin Koffer, Rooth Calvert-Ennals, and myself. We each had a pile of word tiles.  We took turns, choosing one or two tiles from our own pile and building up a surrealist poem on a tin tray, phrase by phrase. It is a type of game similar but not identical to Exquisite Corpse, as the previous words were not hidden.

Below is the result, which appears to be a list of instructions.

Glorious shard created my approach was grace.

Demand a masterpiece after drunk instrument of beer.

Chisel form in original balance.

Never capture harmony if metal breaks.

Sculpt white icons too.

Some angel is here, imagining art.
