Your Original Poems, Inspired by the Bronx

Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx

April is National Poetry Month. To honor the occasion, we have a borough-by-borough poetry challenge. Here's how it works: every week, we'll name a borough and you send us your best, original, tweet-length poems inspired by that borough.

Week One: The Bronx! Read some Bronx-inspired poems below, and start sending in your submissions for Week Two: BROOKLYN. Just tweet your poem with the hashtag #NYcityverse, and we may feature it online or on the air.
