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
a sizzling road:
the sun popped like
a field of blazing maize
Kibbe drove away that afternoon with a car covered in poetry.
