Dail-A-Poem

Jonesing for a poetry fix? Don't have access to a computer or a book? Is the only thing available the cell phone in your jeans? Well, don't panic. You can take care of that poetic monkey on your back by calling 215 746-POEM, sponsored by Writers House.

Call this number and you'll get to hear a featured poem read at the Writers House, from their archives. Enjoy!

This walks the tenuous line between bizarre and brilliant. Definitely falling on the side of brilliant, tho. Now they just need to make an iPhone app that randomly tosses up poems! Perhaps responding to climate, time of year, user input . . .

that would be great. i was thinking of getting an iphone and an app like that would definitely help pass the downtime at work.

Working out licensing rights would be a pain though, unless they stuck with mostly older things . . .
