Poem in Your Pocket Day = Thursday April 17, 2008



Are you ready for this?

Tomorrow is POEM IN YOUR POCKET DAY!

Poem in your pocket, poem in your pocket, poem in your pocket. (think Capital One commercials)

Initiated by the NYC education board,
this is a day where everyone carries a poem in their pocket.

You can participate too!
Just write a poem, and stick it in your (or someone elses') pocket.

And then in the middle of your 9AM board meeting,
or Nia class,
or therapy session,
or subway ride,
or shower,
or coffee date,
or sleep-fest,
Interrupt and shout poetry out to...anyone!
If they look at you funny or want to admit you,
Inform them that it's poem in your pocket day- duh!

I wrote one for my Paul
It's already in his pocket.

Will you write one????? Which pocket will it go into?

I have one more to write - it's for me...
