Underground poetry movement

subway reading. Image hosted on my Flickr site.

A weekday afternoon on the northbound Spadina subway; a commuter placidly reads a book.

But wait... above his head... that's not an ad! What is it?

Egads! Poetry!

And by Lexiconjury's own a. raw, no less!

I had nothing to do with this, but was most pleased to encounter it on my way up to campus. And then on the subway ride home, I ran into John Barlow, making it officially Toronto Poetry Day on the TTC, at least from my point of view. If you have comments or questions about those mysteriously-appearing poems, or if you'd like to submit a poem of your own, there's always poetrywhereyouare@hotmail.com.

Last time I was on the subway, I missed the official poetry posters the TTC used to put up but in many ways I like this better.
