Welcome

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

*A sample poem

WE WERE
SO FULL

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.
