1.) One Stop Poetry. This site is definitely in a New York State of Mind. I ♥ New York!
2.) The March Challenge. Pancakes were first flipped today, so breakfast is on the menu there. Yum!
3.) Big Tent Poetry. The idea is to take an earlier work of one's own and do something 'different' with it, using a tool from their fun list of Poetry Toys. I used my poem 'Little Willie #1', put it through BabelFish (translated to Japanese) and then re-translated it back to English. And if you want to learn more about Little Willie poems, check this out.
Okay...ready? Here we go...

In A New York State of Mind
I have a small magnet of the Brooklyn Bridge
stuck as a memento on the door of my ‘fridge.

It’s an hour long back-up, as the traffic funnels
across the Hudson, in each of the tunnels.
