poems as op ed?

Anthony Russo / For The Times August 11, 2013
In a gratifying departure from the usual guidelines, Los Angeles Times editors solicited views in verse for a feature dedicated to opinion poetry. Grateful to the editors for including mine among them today. And for putting poems where poetry usually isn't. A few years ago, I had the privilege helping the Poetry Society of America in their mission to get poems into ad space on subways and buses. It's surprising how many people who don't like poetry discover they do, when it crosses their path.
