The Mail Poem

Bill Allegrezza's Mail Poems are a wonderful act of anarchy.
".....the idea behind the mail poem is that i write them to send to people who happen to have the same names as poets. i randomnly choose them and then write a poem dedicated to them, which i then send through the mail without my return address. i keep no record of the poems besides occasionally recording myself reading one before i send it out. at this point, i've written about a hundred of them."
He has links to some of those readings at p-ramblings.

I wonder if he's ever accidently sent one to the actual poet...

yes, i have sent a one to an actual poet, but i'm not admitting the poet's name.
