Poetry in place: Marcy 29th In-class assignment
“I’m pretty much all for poetry in public places – poetry on buses, poetry on subways, on billboards, on cereal boxes…my sense is, it’s a good thing to get poetry off the shelves and more into public life…. When you get a poem on a billboard or on the radio or on a cereal box or whatever, it happens to you so suddenly that you don’t have time to deploy your anti-poetry deflector shields that were installed in high school.” – Billy Collins
In that spirit, if you could pick any poem to display in a public place, what would it be?
Find a poem that you want people to read in a particular public place.
