The Poetry Bomb: by S.A. Griffin

The Poetry Bomb is a former U.S. military practice bomb. The artifact will be completely converted into a beautiful object filled with poetry from around the world. When finished, it will have a primo paint job just as if it were a classic car, complete with pin-striping. It will also have a window or portal that will open and close making it possible to not only see inside of the piece, but to take poems out at performances to read out loud, and to add future submissions. Once converted, S.A. Griffin plans to take The Poetry Bomb on tour across the United States.

Griffin is soliciting financial donations and "backers" for this project at KICKSTARTER to help with the costs of creating The Poetry Bomb as well as for funding allocated to offset the costs of taking The Poetry Bomb on tour. He hopes to begin The Poetry Bomb Tour in late April of 2010.
