Do you feel lucky, punk? These famous words immediately bring an image to mind. Onno Kosters, who made his debut in 2004, turns these words into a poem. Poems inspired by photo's, tv images or comic books: Menno Wigman wrote poems inspired by old police photo's, Wim Brands wrote a poem on Tintin and Albertina Soepboer transformed her landscape photo's into poems.
