Katherine Leyton runs How Pedestrian — a fine video-poetry blog. It really is unique, colourful, interesting and full of good poems. Normally, she asks people on the street, airport, grocery store to take a moment and read a poem for the camera. There are some brilliant readers and some not-so-great ones but it is a totally cool experiment and there are some very good poems and themes on there. If you explore you’ll find Haiku on High Finance, World-Cup Poems and a great bunch of videos featuring “Dante in Sicily“. Yep — it is groovy and I was glad Leyton asked me to read one of my own. So, check me out but also explore the rest of the site. It is really good. And really free. And I’m really happy to be on the site. Go on — lose a few minutes with poetry.
