The Daily Palette Vintage

After the Rain

And this bus
You ride
Leaves the desert
          Rolling past cacti
That only days before
          Must have held
Red blossoms
          In their arms

The Daily Palette Vintage

The Daily Palette is pleased to introduce its new Project Coordinator, Jennifer Erixon.

During the month of February we will feature selected artists and works from the Palette's archive.


This poem was chosen for Poetry in Public 2008, sponsored by the Iowa City Public Art Program. Poetry in Public celebrates Iowa City's rich literary tradition and local writing talent by displaying poems by writers of all ages in city buses, a downtown kiosk, community centers, and the public library.
