We posted about ‘poemballs’ back in 2013 and are happy the idea has some sticking power (without damaging your fillings). That one was in Chicago; this one is in Provo, Utah, where Provo Poetry installed the first machine at Enliten Bakery and Café and a second on the top floor of Pioneer Book.
The poems are the work of poets who have lived or spent significant time in Utah County (if you’re one, see the latest call for poems). A quarter buys a poem and the money supports the activities of Provo Poetry. According to an article in the Daily Herald, the machines must be fairly popular: Provo Poetry has already used 2,000 of the plastic capsules.
