Detroit, line by line

The Metro Times cover story this week is, literally, a poem. "The City Has Moved Too Close to the Sun" is a cento, or cut-up, poem about Detroit compiled by poet/musician M.L. Liebler using lines from the poems of Detroit poets. The list includes friends of mine like Mary Jo Firth Gillett, Zilka Joseph, Cheri L.R. Taylor, Matthew Olzmann, and VieVee Francis. It is a cool project, worth checking out.
