Here’s a collaborative poem written by seven friends one evening right after an open mic at the Blue Horse Gallery. This one was written in the style of the exquisite corpse.

Pork Charisma Heals

No, it isn’t what you think—
two yellow bikes, mated at the hub.

Without a doubt: he was smitten.
“No Rena! That’s all they ever say!”

Whiskey warms the forgotten soul,
and you’re worth every bit, honey.

by James Bertolino, Nancy Canyon, David Drummond, Rena Priest, Haley (Rena’s nice friend), and Anita K. Boyle
