It's Summer, Have Some Poetry on a Stick

By Harriet Staff

From Minnesota's KSTP:

The Minnesota State Fair isn't the only place you will find something on a stick. This week, Jason Davis meets up with a poet who distributes his poetry the Minnesota way.

David Bengston thinks outside the box. In order to get his poetry out into the public, he prints cards of poetry and glues them to a stick.

Once the poetry on a stick is made, David goes out in his community to hand them out for free. Since he started handing them out, he has made nearly 8,000 copies.
