Grand Central (On the back of a MetroCard)

Yesterday, a friend from my writing program and I went uptown and had to take the subway. When we came back downtown, we went to a diner for something to eat. As we were talking, she mentioned that the MetroCard she used for the subway had a poem on the back. Being that we’re both writers, this was very exciting news. She searched her bag, pulled it out and handed it to me. And right on the back of the card was a poem by Billy Collins (whose poems I have posted many times here). I was thrilled and knew I had to share it. It was such a beautiful surprise to find poetry in the most unlikely of places. (Click the image to enlarge it!)
