A poetic sensation is on its way!

As a poet, I am constantly looking for new and inovative ways to promote my work. To date I have distributed business cards, given poetry readings, been featured on Vancouver Co-Op Radio’s The World Poetry Reading Series and, of course posted here on kmorrispoet.com.

It struck me recently that what is lacking is the creation of a great sensation as a means of bringing my work to the attention of a wider audience. Consequently I have determined, on 1 April, to parade around the city of London dressed in a yellow polka dot bikini. The dots will, of course spell out an as yet unpublished poem. I feel sure that as I stroll around Trafalgar Square, London’s Oxford Street and other such hives of activity, that both I and my poems will attract great attention. My hope is that not only will tourists take photographs but that I will, with luck make the national news, perhaps even elbowing Brexit to the margins of media coverage!

I can not, however claim that this idea is entirely my own. In fact it came to me when viewing this video on Youtube. However I, unlike the young lady featured below, will not be shy as I parade around the great metropolis of London!

      Thanks for your comment, Lorraine. I guess that walking around London in my fetching polka dot bikini may provoke laughter in some of my fellow Londoners and amongst tourists, however it will, I hope also assist in getting my name (and poetry) out there and in selling books. All the best – Kevin

        Thank you, Lorraine. In London the weather forecast is for a temperature between 3 and 13 degrees. I hope that it is closer to 13 degrees, otherwise I shall be rather cold in my bikini.

      Thanks, Chris. If I gain attention and that leads to detention, the public will me adore and cry out for more of my writing. So I am detention inviting!

      Unfortunately I was unable to find the bikini so had to content myself with giving out one of my business cards to a lady in the hope that she will check out my work. But there is always next April 1st in 2020, Lorraine …

        Yes, and maybe next time it could be a bear outfit or a tiger or something, so that it doesn’t get lost. Much easier to find! But perhaps not so striking! Good luck with the business cards.

    Just got in…I took a special trip to London to witness this monumental occasion! Four trains there, four back, delays, trying to circumnavigate the tube, rushing up & down escalators, fighting my way through the crowds, & going hungry, so as I didn’t miss anything…and I didn’t see you, Kevin! Very disappointed indeed! Do you think you could do a repeat performance tomorrow?! 😜

      I am sorry you missed me, Debbie. I can promise you a repeat performance on 1st April 2020 and may even sell tickets next time … Best wishes – Kevin
