Poetry on Buses, one of King County’s most beloved public art programs, is back!
This year’s theme: “Writing Home.”
Our thanks to those who contributed to the community poetry workshops, and to all who submitted a poem for consideration.
We invite you to visit this site in November for a new poem a day. And keep a look out for those RapidRide Poetry buses!
All the best,
Team Poetry on Buses
In my father’s mouth, home was a gap the size
of an ocean. It ached like a loose tooth.
My mother’s mouth?
a garden; a soft green dream.
To do our part, we tried swallowing both:
days full of seawater, days of produce
but we’d already
had so many blessings.
By Roberto Ascalon
The poems are in. What’s next?
