“of the Universe” club, Part I

On July 17, 2012, Bianca Spriggs asked her fellow Lexingtonians to help her with ideas for the poem she was writing for The Lexington Tattoo Project. A love letter to Lexington, after all, is best written with a little collective input. Though most of those who responded had no idea they were helping Bianca craft a love letter, they were earnest. And they had fun with the prompt.

What is Lexington to the people who call it home? It is the _______________ of the Universe.

(Look closely. Many of these suggestions found their way into the final poem.)
