Grand Central

Billy Collins
A turquoise poster with an abstract gold design features a poem titled Grand Central, written by Billy Collins.

Grand Central

The city orbits around eight million
centers of the universe

and turns around the golden clock
at the still point of this place.

Lift up your eyes from the moving hive
and you will see time circling

under a vault of stars and know
just when and where you are.
