Poem at Boston City Hall

Once again, one of my poems was selected for exhibition at Boston City Hall as part of the Mayor's Prose & Poetry Program. The previously unpublished poem "Sine Waves and Canadian Geese" was one of 44 selected by guest juror Charles Coe and can be found on the third floor by the South Elevators.

Of course, this will only affirm G. Tod Slone's view that I am part of the literary establishment. (Charles Coe, in his work with the Massachusetts Cultural Council has also been the target of Slone's attempts at cartooning, though I find it interesting that when Slone finally decided to lampoon an African-American writer, he deliberately left Coe faceless.)

Boston City Hall is in Old Scollay Square, accessible by way of the Government Center, State Street, and Haymarket Subway Stations. The current selection of poems will remain on display until May, 23, 2007.
