Facts: This was inspired by a guy I first spotted in 1986 (rue de l'Ecole de Medecine, to be more precise). He used to go up to people and ask them if they liked poetry, his aim being to read or sell them some of his poems. He did this for years with very little success. One day, I realised that he was no longer trying to flog his poems -- he just continued walking round the Latin Quarter with his folder tucked under his arm. If you hang about the Odeon/Saint-Germain area long enough, you'll probably come across him. [permalink]
