Moving, Very Moving, 1993

A poem about the thicket of reactions whenever a New Yorker tells friends about a plan to leave the city.  Disguised as a “Man with Van” type advertisement (including tear-off tabs at the bottom), 500 of these 8 ½ x 11 flyers were posted at bus shelters, on utility poles and other public spaces.  Some of the flyers lasted for days, often with a few of the tabs removed.
