Union Depot 214 4th St E St Paul, MN (Stand under the clock facing the Greek restaurant).
I wanted to write another Choose Your Own Adventure poem for Ring Ring Poetry, but one where the choices were emotional ones. I also wanted to sneak a poem into Northern Spark without applying. I wasn’t so much worried about getting in, so much as I missed the application deadline, and Ring Ring isn’t so much about asking permission.
So I went to the Union Depot two weeks ago and spent some time in the building. It was almost entirely empty at the time, and may be when you go to listen to this poem, unless you’re also going to see all of the things that are Northern Spark. I’m including a few photos from that day in the quiet, empty depot. Phone (612) 223-POEM to hear this poem.
