The Word On The Street
How Pedestrian asks people on the street to read a poem for the camera. Here are some examples:
This fella does a nice job with Aigin Larki's "quiet clean."
I liked hearing Dante's Abandon All Hope in Italian.
These Japanese unicyclists are so brave and fun.
Achilles (for David Beckham) by Carol Ann Duffy
Side-note: As long as we're talking about football/soccer, did you know that a betting service in England had a poet-in-residence for the last World Cup? Gary Boswell wrote a poem for nearly every day of the competition.
Today's Poetry Friday round-up is at Picture Book of the Day.
