Poetry Drone

Roughly 50 years after a young protester placed a single flower into the barrel of a military policeman’s rifle, a California poet is turning again to flower power — and drones — to protest war.

Los Angeles poet David Shook is on an ambitious mission to raise $10,000 to fly a drone dropping biodegradable antiwar “poem bombs” impregnated with wildflower seeds around the world.

Project Poetry Drone aims to purchase an unmanned aircraft to carry and drop specially commissioned poems by leading U.S. and world poets over literary and art events in an attempt to demonstrate the good drones can actually do.
