Poetry readings and recitals done, usually of only one or two poems and by a small group or solo poet, in a public place previously unprepared for the "attack". Originally defined by poets William F. DeVault (the Amomancer) and Daniel S. McTaggart and framed in McTaggart's poem "Guerrilla Poetry".
Two young women walk into a Starbucks, one distracts the barrista while the other whips out a book, chants the words of "Ozymandias of Egypt" in her guerrilla poetry attack on the crowd and then they are both gone into the morning chaos.
