Students all wrote object poems in class as an exercise. The objects given to the students included finger puppets of prom queens, Catholic nuns, as well as a rubber eyeball, ping pong ball, miniature Pokey, and a rubber ducky. We then all chose one line that stood out to them, haunted them, or otherwise amused them.

We then all read a live, self-made cento, which is a poem made up entirely of lines from other poems.
