Street poet in Berkley CA

January 23 2007

Zach Houston is a young poet/artist who interacts with the public by going to them -- most recently at the Berkeley Bowl Marketplace in Berkeley, California.

With a sign "Poems About Anything" he asks passers-by to give him a subject about which he'll compose a poem, right on demand. While people are shopping, he types their poem on his portable typewriter, then delivers their poem to them as they leave the store. Many times they leave him a small donation.

Zach is currently also taking part in a show called 'Spaces in Conflict' at the brand new gallery "Samespace" in Oakland, California.
