it's National Poetry Month

Throughout April at my office we take turns being the Poetry Bomber (though this year we are looking for a new title...Poetry Basher? Poetry Spy?).
This week it was my turn to post poetry throughout the sixth floor.


I started by adding star poems to my garland from Christmas which I then hung from the lights over the conference table (K helped - I am too short to reach those lights).


It took a while to write the Yeats A Drinking Song poem on one continuous slip of paper and then wind it into a wine bottle...I did it here too with a bottle of scotch and some Robert Burns.


I put Litany, by Billy Collins in four red photo cards


and added random photos of Bulgarian musicians inside the cards because that's the way I roll.


I drew a long line of Forgetfulness (also Collins) on the wall near my office on green paper.


This is The Difference Between Pepsi and Coke.




is a twelve line poem in six little boxes.

This one


is At The Desk.
I posted it at every cubicle...and on the CEO's desk.

We'll be rounding it all off tonight at a star-studded poetry reading uptown.

I am a poetry nut. I luff things like "This Be The Verse" by Philip Larkin and "The Windhover" by Gerard Manley Hopkins.

"I grow old..... I grow old....
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled."

You are so ingenious! I love EVERYTHING you did, but especially the poems in a bottle (the Bulgarian musicians are pretty cool too).

Poetry Ninja?

I love your Poetry in the Workplace installations - they make me want to read poetry everyday.
