poetry on trolleys

Poetry on the T

We’ve talked about poetry on buses and here’s another entry for the poetry-in-transit file: Poetry on the T. This Mass Poetry program puts poetry posters on Boston’s trolleys and “enables more than one million people who ride the T every day — to get to work, school, home, to go to restaurants, bars, parks — to read poetry during their commute, in place of advertisements.”

The program is funded in monthly segments — no funding, no posters — and posters bear the sponsor’s name or logo and feature poems chosen jointly by the sponsor and Mass Poetry. Read the poems, including a larger version of Joyce Peseroff’s “Your Ad Here”, see additional photos in a Metro article and learn more about the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority art collection.
