Danger Cushions turned out to be the worst partner in crime possible, with his bouncy good looks and constant smiling at strangers, it proved very difficult to blend in with the crowd. And by the way there was no crowd either. This IPYPIASM is getting tougher with less people around, the sales staff tend to watch you more, so it's harder than ever to subtly place a poem.
I managed eventually and here's the evidence.
And on shelf in all it's shining glory
By the way - any newbies to IPYPIASM please feel free to join in. The thinking is, we like poems and we like shops, or we hate shops, whatever your feeling on shops - I'm betting the month of December will see you in them more often than at any other time of year. So poems in shops is a way to make that trip more fruitful, bearable, fun, exciting, or charitable depending on your outlook. Write a poem. Place it in shop. Take a pic and post it on your blog. Let us know about it. The poems may or may not be related to where they end up in the shop, they are there as a present to other shoppers, the world at large, etc. They should be short enough to read while browsing a shelf. They may end up being scrunched up by a tidying employee, or they could end up treasured in someone's wallet or locket or most favourite pocket, whatever the case may be... get em out there!!
