In the mid-sixties, Belgian-American experimental/visual poet Alain Arias-Misson returned to his birthplace, Brussels, which his family had fled during World War Two for New York. Back in Brussels the poet initiated his well-known 'public poems', which predate the genre performance and are all different from one another and never repeated. For Arias-Misson, the street is the page upon which the poem can be drawn. The city can be construed as a text.
