I like finding intersections between poetry and other things, such as:
* poetry and moviesRecently, I noticed a poetry-theme park connection...
* poetry and politics
* poetry and speeches and court documents
* poetry and dance
* poetry and comics
* poetry and songs
* poetry and neuroscience, genetics, and chemistry
* poetry and the blues
* poetry and opera
* poetry and photography
* poetry and t-shirts
* Laura's poetry and football
I got a kick out of visiting Seuss Landing in Universal Studios, Orlando last weekend. It's not every day that I get to hang out in a place devoted to one of my favorite poets!
Another intersection that has an ongoing appeal for me is poetry and art. I thought Alisa Burke's idea about creating large paintings full of text was fun. She used "i carry your heart with me(i carry it in" by e.e. cummings for hers. Check it out!
