Richard Hansen's 24th Street Irregular Press presents the POEMS-FOR-ALL series. What are POEMS-FOR-ALL? They are small poems in small booklets half the size of a business card. They're scattered around town - on buses, trains, cabs, in restrooms, bars, left along with the tip, stuffed into a stranger's back pocket. Whatever. Wherever. The 24th Street Irregular Press cranks them out to be taken by the handful and scattered like seeds by those who want to see poetry grow in a barren cultural landscape.
