Poetry Garage

Have you ever parked in one of Disneyland's vast parking lots and had to remember where your car was by the name of an animated character whose visage was nearest your parking spot? How about remembering which floor of a garage you are parked on? Do you refer to numbers, or color codes?

One parking garage in Chicago has helped its patrons remember the floors where they left their cars through poetry. How do they do that, you might wonder, and is it effective?

Check out the whole story of the Poetry Garage in this Poetry Foundation audio feature.
