Paint Poems on My Car: LitFest Pasadena 2013

Poet Just Kibbe of the Pirate Pig Collective drove a white sedan to the second annual LitFest Pasadena. He handed out big, fat markers and invited people to write poems on it. After some hesitation – What should I write? What kind of poem is right for a car? Do you have any white-out? – people began to write. Their own poems. Poems by Famous Poets.

I wrote a portion of a poem by Pablo Neruda:

I was walking
down
a sizzling road:
the sun popped like
a field of blazing maize

Kibbe drove away that afternoon with a car covered in poetry.

  1. Wonderful! I keep looking for this car around town, but so far I haven’t spotted it.
