Poets on the Vaporetto

Filmgoers battling with steatopygous tourists on crowded Venetian public transport can be cheered by ‘Poesie sul Vaporetto’, a straight pinch from Judith Chernaik‘s 20-year-old London brilliant-wheeze ‘Poems on the Underground’. The first batch of twenty included SMP’s Patrick McGuinness (Montréal – OWB Booklet n.6), and the next round is set to include both Janet Fisher (Chopsticks – OWB Booklet n.10) and Jason Heroux (Black Coffee – OWB Booklet n.14). San Marco knows ‘ow to pick ’em.
