845 384 2445, Dial-a-Poem
Call the number 845 384 2445. It’s free. You will be offered a short poem. This is not a new idea. Rather it’s a nice way to share some humanity. Each month a poet or song writer will offer a short poem or lyric. The number may change but the service will remain the same. Tom Romeo is featured until the end of December.
“After first meeting Tom Romeo, his wife, Robin, told her sister that he was a Storyteller…to which her sister replied, “They all are.”
Some of Tom’s work can be found in his two recently self-published Chap Books entitled “Remember?” and “Demented Love”.
Dial-A-Poem is a phone-based service started in 1968 by poet John Giorno after a phone conversation with his friend William Burroughs. Fifteen phone lines were connected to individual answering machines; anyone could phone Giorno Poetry Systems and listen for free to a poem offered from various live recordings.
The venture was a success from 1969 on, and the poems dealt with numerous social issues such as the Vietnam War and the sexual revolution. Giorno claimed the service later influenced the creation of other information services over the telephone, such as banking, sports, and investing.
