Row houses in Flatbush, Brooklyn

To commemorate National Poetry Month, we have a borough-by-borough poetry challenge: Every week, we'll name a borough and you send us your best, original, tweet-length poems inspired by that borough.

Week One was the Bronx, and Week Two was Brooklyn! Read some Brooklyn-inspired poems below.

And start sending in your submissions for Week Three: Staten Island. Just tweet your poem with the hashtag #NYcityverse, and we may feature it online or on the air.
