Poetry on the Bus

20150314_203903For each of the past three years the Raleigh Review has sponsored Poetry on the Bus where they place short poems in the advertising space on the downtown Raleigh R-Line buses. I’m proud to announce that in this the fourth year of the program, they accepted one of my “bad beatnik” poems for inclusion. I never expected to see “I think therefore I am” in print. I wrote it as a piece to be read in a black turtleneck and beret while smoking a fake cigarette.

I took a picture of the placard Saturday evening at a Raleigh Review reading featuring former North Carolina Poet Laureate Joseph Bathanti but if you’re riding the R-Line and notice it, please take a pic for me. I’d love to see it in the wild.
