Play the game Exquisite Corpse in April and help create a poem completely out of everyone's control. Drop boxes, each individually labeled with a part of the sequence will be in the library.

Exquisite Corpse, a parlor game invented by surrealist writers, is a fun and exciting way to create poetry. Play the game at the Olmsted Falls Library in April during National Poetry Month. Drop boxes, each individually labeled with one part of the sequence (adjective, noun, adverb, verb) will be placed around the branch. Write a word that matches the part of speech and put it in the coinciding box. At the end of April, we will create one large poem out of everyone's submissions.
