Bring along a couple of friends, paper and a pen, for this Neal Cassady-inspired walk. Begin at the Byron Rogers Federal Building at 1961 Stout Street. Take a right onto 20th and then a left on California. In a couple blocks you'll come across the street art of the Mercury Café. Pop in for a drink, caffeinated or otherwise, and then continue one more block down California until you come to Lawson Park, known to Write Denver as Sonny Lawson Field.

2301 Welton | Prompt: With your friends (remember, you brought along at least two) write an exquisite corpse poem inspired by Sonny Lawson Field. An exquisite corpse is a writing game invented by the Surrealists. It is collectively composed. The first person writes the first line, the next writes the second, and so on sequentially with each person only being shown the line before.

In the 1940's Neal Cassady, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg wrote an exquisite corpse poem titled "Pull My Daisy". Here it is:

Pull my daisy
 tip my cup
 all my doors are open
 Cut my thoughts
 for coconuts
 all my eggs are broken
 Jack my Arden
 gate my shades
 woe my road is spoken
 Silk my garden
 rose my days
 now my prayers awaken

Bone my shadow
 dove my dream
 start my halo bleeding
 Milk my mind &
 make me cream
 drink me when you’re ready
 Hop my heart on
 harp my height
 seraphs hold me steady
 Hip my angel
 hype my light
 lay it on the needy

Heal the raindrop
 sow the eye
 bust my dust again
 Woe the worm
 work the wise
 dig my spade the same
 Stop the hoax
 what’s the hex
 where’s the wake
 how’s the hicks
 take my golden beam

Rob my locker
 lick my rocks
 leap my cock in school
 Rack my lacks
 lark my looks
 jump right up my hole
 Whore my door
 beat my boor
 eat my snake of fool
 Craze my hair
 bare my poor
 asshole shorn of wool

say my oops
 open my shell
 Bite my naked nut
 Roll my bones
 ring my bell
 call my worm to sup
 Pope my parts
 pop my pot
 raise my daisy up
 Poke my papa
 pit my plum
 let my gap be shut

"Pull My Daisy" was set to music by David Amram for the 1959 film of the same name directed by Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie.
