Laneway Poetry


Yesterday, while wandering around the neighbourhood, I came across a long poem pasted onto the walls of an alley, off Waverly Street between Fairmount and Groll. It was preceded by a brief introduction: “The Public Zine: This project comes in response to the inundation of public space with corporate messages. We are reclaiming these spaces with the hope that our actions will temporarily alter a system that dictates all public visual space must be used for capitalist pursuits. We do not want to see you anything, but we do hope you enjoy the show.”

Below, some wag had written, “Too bad it’s not that good.” Oh well. “A” for effort! The folks at Spacing would approve.
