Tired of being inside? Do you want to be wild and/ break out of the limitations that are always being set? Poetry is the answer. We’re strapping on our shoes and grabbing our pens, then meeting at the PS187 school yard to go on a poet’s adventure! Poetry is a way of seeing things outside the boxes they are always being put in. We’ll be rejuvenated by the nature of Ft. Tryon Park and emboldened by our resilient neighborhood. We’ll explore the wilds of language out in the world, allowing a stream of poetry to flow from the river of possibility.
