Muses And Metaphor Tell Me More commemorates April as National Poetry Month with "Muses and Metaphor," a series combining two of the program's passions: poetry and social media. The poems featured are "tweets," messages (140 characters or less) exchanged via Twitter by NPR fans. Poet, writer and performer Holly Bass is the curator.
