Poetry in Motion: Lady Liberty by Nathalie Handal

There are still a few of these posters around, although I snapped a photo of this one on November 16, 2015:

Lady Liberty by Nathalie Handal

              All stars lead to this city,

she's an angel unfolding midnight

         a river of invisible trumpets

              and sidewalks of moons,

                              she's the blues

                        drunk on the light

                  commuting with love

                                on a sailboat
   
                                  that's found

                         the perfect island.
