On Random Acts of Poetry 

"Literary," or just observant, or restless, people who reside in large cities (what's the plural form of "metropolis"?) enjoy an unfair advantage over us Vermonters: They're blessed with an abundance of casually strewn messages — etched by strangers on subway bathrooms, sidewalks, phone booths that don't work — that allow them to read meaning and beauty into phrases that aren't particularly important in the big picture.

So it's a good thing we have Front Porch Forum to stimulate our collective need for the oddly transcendent. Note, for example, a post to my neighborhood forum this weekend:

MOTORCYCLE JACKET

So, if you have a jacket, let's talk.
