I am happy to report that my friend Mary Anne has taken up the challenge of attempting to read poetry to things and animals that just don't care. She has documented her experiences and has sent in three photos that show quite clearly the harrowing, heartbreaking experience that is reading poetry to things and animals that just don't care.
Mary Anne Perkowski reading poetry to green rooisbos at Santa Fe Farmer's Market. Tea leaves, they think they should be read, not read to....geesh.

Mary Anne Perkowski sitting in Pecos National Monument Park reading poetry to an as-yet upright snowman. I could tell he was more preoccupied by the spring thaw.

Mary Anne Perkowski reading poetry to a fallen snowman. Was he knocked over with sentiment or puddled by the erotic rush of the poem "Sex with a Rocket?"
