Christopher Salerno of NCSU sends this evidence of Poetry at McDonald’s in Raleigh. Chris says “Down the street from my place last week. Donald hall’s worst nightmare. I couldn’t resist the photo op.”
My question did anyone go to this poetry event?

Happening is the right word. They are called Kula events here in the
Radical Reading Club, organized by a few poets from both coasts
and the dread Midwest. We read that day at Pudding House and out
in the square without Mr. Radio and gathered a crowd of maybe two,
and several slowed as they walked through. The Kula tradition is
based on an island cult of gift giving, the finer the gift, the greater
the blessing and honor on the giver. Most gifts were artistic creations
that took time and great effort and were carefully crafted. The custom
actually replaced war-making. Old lefties do wierd things. I don’t
know if this is related, but Kula poets have read in hundreds of places,
published on billboards and bus signs, read like streetcorner preachers
for years. Why not become one. Nothing is more exhilirating and/or
disappointing, I do it regularly and recommend it highly. You will not
believe the sorts of things that just “happen.”
