  • Brooklyn Poets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization celebrating and cultivating the poets, poetry and literary heritage of Brooklyn, the birthplace of American poetry.

    That’s right, birthplace. If you believe, as we do, that with the publication of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass in 1855, American poetry was born, then Brooklyn, where that book was published by the Rome Brothers print shop on Old Fulton St, is where that took place.

    Over the years, Brooklyn has served as home to and inspired some of the most original and influential poets on the world stage, from Whitman, Hart Crane and Marianne Moore in the American tradition to expatriate masters such as W. H. Auden and Joseph Brodsky; visiting visionaries such as Vladimir Mayakovsky and Federico García Lorca; and hip-hop pioneers such as Big Daddy Kane, MCA, Guru, Biggie Smalls, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and Jay Z.

    From Walt Whitman to Jay Z, Brooklyn, we go hard.

    Q: Who are the people in these pictures?
    A: All the photographs are repurposed original moments. That is to say, I do not know these people except for the new dialogue I and you create for them.

    Q: What if I want to customize a card?
    A: Email or instagram @squidbath! If you have a piece of fabric, design idea, words, or a photo it’s time we start to make something together.

    Q: Where do the words come from?
    A: I’ve gathered a collection of lines from books and poems (all authors cited on backs of cards) as well as a little help from my wise and cheeky friends and writing of my own.

    Q: When can I send one of these absurdities?
    A: Unlike the traditional Hallmark calendar, Squid bath encourages communication at random. Remember when your neighbor friends used to walk to your house, knock on your door, and ask you to come out and play? That’s what getting a card in the middle of April feels like.

    Q: Why send cards when I have a phone?
    A: We are a people oversaturated by instant text messages and email inboxes crowded by one thousand unsorted promos; the physical letter is a rare and special form of conversation I encourage you to embark upon.
