Thursday, April 30 is Poem In Your Pocket Day

What is "Poem In Your Pocket Day"? It's simple: select a poem you love, carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, friends, neighbors, anonymous passers-by and other unsuspecting innocent bystanders.

According to the Academy of American Poets, "Poems from pockets will be unfolded throughout the day with events in parks, libraries, schools, workplaces, and bookstores." Maybe not everywhere (I'm pretty sure not here in Mountainair), but give it your best shot anyway.

There's always email, perhaps safer from the slings & arrows of unappreciative audiences.
