A Tribute to the Exquiste Corpse Coffee House

Just Hanging’ at the E.
(the Exquisite Corpse Coffee House)

By John Yurgens

Hanging’ at the E, a place where you can see, the artists known as me.

Just hangin at the E my artist buddies and me, Sharing a coffee, conversation, and collaboration


If struggling for a word or phrase, Others help to fill that gap. We share the joy, when the work is done.

A special place the E. A place where any artist can just be.

Sitting here with pen and coffee in hand I write my word for thee.

There’s Coffee in my table, Rocking in my chair, in the open air, watching the silent fanfare, Push away despair

Biding time… until I go… To Parts Unknown to me

I write my words, then file them, to share another day,

I write so much while at the E

Sharing time and space with artists just like me. All welcome at the E., Aspiring just to be…

Piano players, painters, clay throwers, Poets, novelist, mixed media, just to name a few.

You name the discipline the artist has been here

Each Leaving behind. A trace their creative energy from deep within their artist’s soul,

Left for others to embrace and do with as they please. Take only what you need

When time is done, please leave behind, your own creative force. For, yet another to consume.

Each ensuring that we leave behind as much as we have used, to keep the balance of the ying and yang

A very Special Place to me. Hanging at the “E”
