    Random Act of Poetry -- World AIDS Day


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     In October of 2009 Dylan Barmmer began a spiritual journey he called "Random Acts of Poetry." Dylan said, 'It just sort of came to me as a way to remind everyone that poetry is in and all around us...we just need to wake up to it.' In honor of World AIDS Day Dylan decided to recite this poem. Dyland said, 'The poem came to me here at my home office, after reading about World AIDS Day. I scratched it out, then drove to this spot (D Street steps in Encinitas, a famous surf spot). I rehearsed it in my head a few times, tweaked a couple lines, then hit it in one take; Which I try to do as much as possible now.'
