Tacoma has a poet laureate!

Smiraldo, Lucas, is our wordsmith's name.

His Laureate Listening Project-what of it?

It seeks to bring our local verse acclaim.

Smiraldo gathers verse from Northwest pens,

Each ode about a neighborhood locale.

We'll see Tacoma through poetic lens;

A "sense of place" is Lucas' rationale.

Each poem will be read in spoken word,

Then posted to a Google map online.

Thus searchable, the poem may be heard

Accompanied by music. How divine!

To learn the many other things we'll get,

Consult VanillaSoul@clear.net.
