*My Kind of Bomb

From The Guardian:

Poetry rained from the skies on Saturday night in Berlin as 100,000 bookmarks printed with poems by 80 poets from Germany and Chile were dropped on the city from a helicopter…It was the fifth “poetry rain” project from Chilean art collective Casagrande, which has arranged previous poetry bombing events in Santiago de Chile (2001), Dubrovnik (2002), Gernika (2004) and Warsaw (2009) – all cities which, like Berlin, have suffered aerial bombings during their history.

More please–more poetry rain, more dancing in the street, more street art, more cake and more ice cream and more hugs for children, the well hugged and the unhugged, the children who look like children and the ones concealed inside an adult body. I think I will run upstairs now and put my arms around A.

  2. Oh yes, yes to all of it and more music too…

    And yep, that’s definitely my kind of downpour too!
