CBD poetry: So pink!

I was wandering the lanes up around Lonsdale and William Streets in Melbourne last week when I came across these very pink poetry posters stuck up alongside the usual promos for festivals and clothing brands &c.

Turns out they’re the work of a Melbourne design company called ERD Communications. Nice work, ERDers! It would be great to think that these are the first in a series. You can click on each image for a (vaguely blurry – apologies for my crap phone camera) closeup.

erd heart Melbourne poem poster - So I drift off down an alley called AC/DC Lane. Bon Scott's ghost is slient - Ezra Bixerd heart Melbourne - Melbourne you are our work in progress - Steve Smarterd heart Melbourne - We Were Made for Each Othererd heart Melbourne - we are ordinary poems made great by our collection in the everyday space

Vetti: Live in Northcote (I never know if that means “I live” or “coming to you live from”) spotted some too – they seem to have good coverage of the CBD at the moment. Not sure how long it’ll be before they’re covered up by ads for Wrangler or the new Beasties album, so if you like your poetry in the wild, I’d be heading to postcode three thousand fairly soon.

When I was a younger fella i put lots of swears in me poems... the lovely @benjamindodds scored some anticlinal poetry in the post this week. and so could you if you have a desire for geological poetry zines. just @ me and the magic will happen! "As part of the Warlords of Wor 5th Anniversary Collection, here comes ROCK GOLEM BOG-NAR! With his new IMPENETRABLE GREY GOLEM ARMOUR in place, thanks to his SUPERCHARGED EMERALD SWAMP-SPEAR, the malevolent muck-menace swirls his FOUR-BOULDER BOLO FIST overhead as he commands the very rocks and stones of the planet Wor to go forth and conquer!" #warlordsofwor #bognar "Just in time for the 5th anniversary of Warlords of Wor, here comes CLASSIC SWAMP ATTACK BOG-NAR! With his FOUR-FISTED SLIMEPACK mounted on his back and his MYSTICAL MUCK-SPEAR, the King of All Bogs has never been a more ominous opponent!"
