London Got Bombed at Dusk–by Poetry

Helicopter drops 100,000 poems on London

See on Scoop.itPoetry On the Sidewalk

London was bombed last night, by helicopter, right along the south bank of the Thames. Nobody was hurt, thank heaven, or thank the muses, because it was not explosives, but poems that rained down on the city. Read the whole story in the attached article from the Huffington Post.

Seriously, why do we not reach out and smack each other with art more often? What’s going on in your corner of the world to bring poetry to the streets?
