Spring Cleaning 2009: The Rotten Words Project

 

Earth Day Update

On March 24th at Shafer Court on Virginia Commonwealth University Monroe Park Campus, I asked people to give me words they no longer wanted to use. This project is part of my presentation and final paper for my Ars Combinatoria class. Originally, I was going to present the results of my project on April 21st, but the date changed to April 28th.

This is the poem written exclusively with the collected words. I tried to keep the order in which I received the words, because I believe that the randomness makes the product more insterting. I added punctuation marks, but kept the spelling.
