Once again, it's Poem in Your Pocket Day, when the City tries to urge people to line their vestments with verse through subway advertising and whatever other free media space they can scrounge up. The City even invites people to "Read the poem in Mayor Bloomberg's pocket" (yes, we did say, "Ewww!" when we read that, too) and there are some suggested poems.

More information from Academy of American Poets. Here's a list of outstanding poetry from the NY Public Library, and here's the NYC Poetry Meetup group. WNYC had some poets read their poems - listen and read here. And one of the event's sponsors, The New York Times, has an article about poetry blogs today.
