MTA or PhD?

For good, I hope
You may have noticed that the MTA's Poetry in Motion program is back, bringing the likes of Billy Collins' "Grand Central" to subway cars (and buses?). This poster on a 7 train confirms it:
"Many of you felt parting was not such sweet sorrow. So we're bringing it back in a very artful way. Hopefully, you'll feel transported."

Does this suggest we felt the suspension of the program was not so sweet? Or not so sorrowful? Bitter sorrow? Sweet relief? Damn you, MTA, I don't pay you $104 a month to make me think! Actually, given what the authority is proposing for its next fare hike, we ought not just to feel transported, but actually be transported (a la Star Trek).
