Chicagoans may have seen Poetry Cabs driving around town.

On a windy April day, PoFo people emerged from the Poetry Foundation building to break for a fun photo shoot with one of the Poetry Taxis. We’ve gone around and asked those staff members for their favorite poems, Poetry issues, or other poetry things on our site and in our building.

For our first staff pick, we have finance and administration associate Dylan Swisher, who reads and draws with kids in our library almost every week during Children’s Poemtime. Dylan, who is sitting in the back seat, loved the Lemony Snicket section, Poetry Not Written For Children That Children Might Nevertheless Enjoy from the September 2013 issue of Poetry and especially recommends Snicket’s footnotes.

Events and logistics manager Ashley Sheehan, in the front seat, had two poems in mind: ‘My pick is this poem by Katherine Coles from our May issue: “Kept in Mind." I also really enjoy this poem from the July 1980 issue of Poetry that felt fitting given the weather: “Seasonal Change” by Diana Ó Hehir.’

Vrubel, Mikhail (1856-1910) - 1897 Morning (State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia)
Vrubel stands out because of the originality of his art. Despite the absence of direct followers, the importance of Vrubel’s art should not be underestimated. He pointed the way and made possible the experiments of the succeeding decades.
