an exquisite corpse inspired by marxistglue's name

an exquisite corpse is a poem composed by a group. each person takes a turn adding to  it.

so - feel free to continue the poem in response, either along the same lines or in new ones...

I keep looking at this wondering why it makes my head spin and have nothing to offer...
maybe it's cos I'm upside down

my thought was that the starting point would be some variation on marxistglue's name, so (whatever)ist (type of supply) - Buddhist bookmarks, Trappist acetone, seventh day Adventist stained wood sealant

Just as a game

googled a couple of helpful -isms lists:

big-hearted surrealist neo-Bretonites

attempt to imagine antinomian metaphors

by making true-to-scale models of martha's vineyard

entirely out of kiwis.



meanwhile,

zombiist Zoroastrians with unzipped zippers

hold a collectivist convention

in a pre-millenarianist

port-a-potty

(the following is just about as obnoxious as i can make it)





a fideist faith-healer wearing a fedora,

a modernist mimeograph mechanic,

and a rationalist Reichian in running shoes

all walk into a bar

what do they order?

(ask the rabbi)

internecine strife

between literalist

and hermeneutically liberal

leprichauns

erupts in Lima,

claiming lives and lucky charms.


details at eleven.

neo-Nazarene knock knock.

   -hitlerian who’s there?

oligarchist orange.

   -oligarchist orange hitlerian who?

oligarchist orange you glad I didn’t say bohemian bananas?
