"Open the lines to the poets! We used the telephone for poetry. They used it to spy on you. Poetry plumbers unite! We invite you to do it yourself. Start your own Dial-A-Poem in your own hometown. Get hooked up to the telephones. Call your local telephone company business office; order a system and put on it these LP selections; put on your own local poets and we'll supply you with more poets." (Covertext)

Das ’Giorno Poetry System’ wurde 1965 als ein Non-Profit-Plattenlabel und Vertriebssystem für Audioaufnahmen von dem Schriftsteller und späteren AIDS-Aktivisten John Giorno gegründet, um Dichtung in elektronischen Medien zu präsentieren. Tonmitschnitte von Lesungen, öffentlichen Veranstaltungen, Performances, Soundstücke, Videodichtungen und vieles mehr wurde in ein Netzwerk aus New Yorker Künstlern um John Giorno, Andy Warhol und William S. Burroughs eingespeist. Am bekanntesten wurde sein ’Dial-A-Poem-Service’ (vgl. A-1982-18-19 und A-1989-06), der Gedichte über Telefon abrufen ließ und ein früher Vorläufer der heutigen Telefondienstleistungen und Internetservices war.
