We're nearing the end of National Poetry Month and our poetry challenge, in which we asked you to send in your best, original, tweet-length poems inspired by each of the boroughs.

Week One was the Bronx, Week Two was Brooklyn, Week Three was Staten Island, and Week Four was Manhattan. Read some Manhattan poems below.

And start sending in your submissions for the final week: Queens. Just tweet your poem with the hashtag #NYcityverse, and we may feature it online or on the air.
