Part of the Rain of Poems

As part of the Poetry Parnassus during the Festival of the World and the Olympics, my poem "No Regrets" was included in the 2012 Rain of Poems in London on June 26th.

Considering my work on UXO issues, there's a certain poetry to it all, if you'll pardon the pun:

This project was organized by Casagrande, which is a Chilean art collective that has developed a series of publishing projects and art actions related to poetry and interventions into public spaces. Casagrande has worked on three main projects since 1996 including the publication of a journal that changes its format every issue, giant posters installed in metro stations throughout Santiago, Chile, the sending of a DVD to the library of the International Space Station, and public performances including the series "Bombing of Poems".

 They work with the slogan 'can't be sold, can't be bought' (no se vende ni se compra). In other words, each poetic action, every project or final product is free..
