POETRY RECEIPT SCROLL FROM BRITISH MUSEUM



DAVID KELLY-MANCAUX made a saintly scroll on British museum gift shop receipt paper.

Chris Gutkind got a saintly scroll and hung it across his balcony.

A waterfall.

I was very happy to see poems as waterfall. And as receipt scroll.

However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
