The New York Challenge – April Mini-Challenge!

For the April mini-challenge (part of the larger New York Reading Challenge), Jill of Fizzy Thoughts has decided that we should try to write a poem about New York.


1. I spent longer than you’d believe working on this.
2. It’s based on a true story.
3. I never claimed to be a poet.

New York: A Haiku

It’s hard not to love
A place you buy truck tacos,
Even at four a.m.

And they are the spiciest freakin’ tacos (and burritos and sopes and etc) you will ever have. 😉

Now that you’ve subjected yourself to my poem, make sure to check out the other participants’ superior offerings by going to the challenge page I linked above!

    Haha, of course! Despite my complaining I did enjoy it. It’s nice to flex mental muscles I don’t normally use 🙂

      Oh, definitely!! There is so much great food here, though…I think you’re going to need five meals a day to experience it all. 🙂
