the mayor’s office is soliciting wordsmiths via its Twitter account to send in 140 character poems in honor of Thursday’s city poetry day, some of which will be published in Metro New York that day. In case inspiration doesn’t immediately strike, the mayor’s office provides a few sample “poetweets”:
“I’m sorry this poem is a terrible mess/But what can you do in 140 characters or less…”
“If Tolstoy used Twitter to write ‘War & Peace’/The hours to read it would surely decrease…”
