Telephone Pole Poetry

It's not Shakespeare, Keats, or Ginsberg, but it is intriguing. While probably not worth a separate trip out to see it, the telephone pole poetry along Airport Road may give nearby residents reason to pause. The words, "Every step is in a direction." are spelled out in metal letters nailed to a series of telephone poles as one heads north down the hill toward Hillsboro Street.
