POETRY IN TRANSIT


Each of us in en route.

 

As our bodies travel from home to office, office to grocery store,
pick up and drop off kids, grocery store to home -
our minds also travel a lot of metaphorical ground.

Poetry in Transit is dedicated to supporting local voices,
putting art back into the everyday affairs of the people,
and improving the public transportation experience. 

Maybe you chose Tulsa, maybe someone brought you here,
or maybe you are just passing through. In 10 lines or less send us poems describing,
alluding to, in praise of, or an elegy in honor of how you got to Tulsa.
