Tram poetry de Rus

Poety is good. So good that it needs to be encouraged. Or else, imposed, nicely and smoothly. Russian people are experts in imposing. So they opened a poetry tram in a town called Ekaterinburg in Russia. It works like this: one doesn't need to pay for the ride, but one has to read poetry. With a microphone and piece of paper, or just sitting there, enjoying the views and reading out of your mind/heart/head. It can be a piece of classic; it can also be home-made – there are no limitations, except it ought to be politically correct and not rude. Lydia Ivanovna, an elderly lady, said she felt so inspired by the project that she'd started writing her own little poems and had discovered a genius of poetry in herself. This project initiated by Boris Abelyanin, a poet himself, is said to aim at encouraging and propagating Russian poetry in the age of cultural decay. So far, Bon voyage!
