Did you know that April is National Poetry Month and Thursday is Poem In Your Pocket Day? The Mayor’s Office and the Brooklyn Museum did, and they have some ways to celebrate your inner laureate. Consider captivating a rapt audience on Twitter with the second annual Poetweet contest: Send your best verse with the tag #poetweet through tomorrow to be considered for publication in Metro on Thursday, aka Poem In Your Pocket Day. You can also score free admission to the Brooklyn Museum on Thursday just by bringing some poems (original or borrowed). The free admission includes entry to the Mummy Chamber, so brush up on your iambic pentameter quick to entertain those bunch of stiffs.
