What Rhymes with Priced Out?

Emeryville poet laureate Sarah Kobrinsky has been forced out of her apartment after her landlord—who is also a city planning commissioner—increased her rent by 38 percent with 60 days' notice. Kobrinsky has now moved with her husband and young son to Point Richmond, although she plans to finish out her two-year term as Emeryville's poet laureate. She has also written a poem about the experience called "Aftershock." [Contra Costa Times]
