Words You Can Eat, Poetry Cupcakes via GPS, Global Poetry System

Culture does not have to be staid and the Southbank Center in London is a living proof.

What's the root of this 'Poetry Digest':

"Inspired by the Scottish Poetry Library's brilliant Carry a Poem campaign, we made some poetry cupcakes. The quote is from one of the "carry a poem" wallet cards and is from e. e. cummings' poem "i carry your heart with me( i carry it in'.
