Writer and poet Holly Bass joins host Michel Martin to wrap up Tell Me More's daily poetry series, Muses and Metaphor. In celebration of National Poetry Month, listeners and friends of the program were invited to send in poetic tweets, no longer than 140 characters, via Twitter. Holly speaks with Michel about the series and we hear two poetic tweets from Angie Chuang of Washington, D.C., and Nashay Pendleton of Philadelphia, Pa.
