MTA ad-space

During the summer, or maybe earlier, in the spring just after graduation, a poster on the C train proudly announced to commuters that “Poetry in Motion is back”. And what a lovely use of unused advertising space it is. Certainly a welcome change from the compensation firms suggesting we might be entitled to $$$ if our children suffer birth defects; the ads announcing that there are alternatives to abortion out there if we call this free and confidential number; and the ads asking, is cocaine affecting your lifestyle? Call this number.

I’d prefer Ruby and Henry to be sounding out these words:

(Un-blurred, it reads

Graduation

He told us, with the years, you will come

to love the world

And we sat there with our souls in our laps,

and comforted them.
