Poetry Bombing! KA-BOOM.

I can't begin to explain how happy this kind of project makes me! Poetry bombing is brilliant. Bring poetry to the masses in unexpected ways. Agustina Woodgate states on her site:

Sewing poems in clothes is a way of bringing poetry to everyday life just by displacing it, by removing it from a paper to integrate it and fuse it with our lives.

Think of all the times that people encounter text in their days. How much of that text isn't trying to sell them something? What about language for the sake of beauty, inspiration, hope, excitement and passion? Yes! That's what this is about. Get out your sewing needles people! I need to find a thrift store, stat.

More here. Check out Woodgate's video. My favorite part is when she is hiding between racks of clothing so she won't get kicked out. Also, her sweet dance moves.
