"Pull My Daisy" is a poem by Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady. It was written in the late 1940s in a similar way to the Surrealistexquisite corpse” game, with one person writing the first line, the other writing the second, and so on sequentially with each person only being shown the line before.

It provided the title for the film Pull My Daisy, which starred Ginsberg and was based on an event in the life of Cassady. The poem also featured in a jazz composition by David Amram, which appeared in the opening of the film. The film is available at ubu.com.

"Pull My Daisy" can be found published in various forms in Kerouac's Scattered Poems and Ginsberg's Collected Poems.
