When you gotta go, you gotta read some poetry!



The City’s Takoma Park Arts cultural series has revived the Bathroom Poetry Project with poems by local poets featured in bathrooms at the Takoma Park Community Center at 7500 Maple Avenue. Silver Spring poet Regina Coll founded the project in 2008 with poems spreading across the country in restrooms, loos, privies, latrines, and water closets. Bathroom poetry appeared in Takoma Park, Washington, D.C., Raleigh, Chicago, Austin, and Portland. Why let good poems go to waste so we’ve brought them back for a second visit or number 2 (sorry, couldn’t resist). The next time you’re at the Community Center, get some reading done when it’s time to relieve yourself.
