I just compiled these statistics: since opening six weeks ago, there have been almost 3400 poems dialed in the Telepoem Booth. That's 555 poems a week, 80 extra poems a day. I can't help but think the world is a better place with all these poems being listened to! #telepoembooth #poetrysavestheworld
