MJ writes a ZIP Ode

Throughout April, WLRN and O, Miami asked locals to write odes to their ZIP codes. A ZIP Ode is five lines, with the number of words in each line determined by the poet’s particular ZIP code. If a ZIP code contained a zero, that line could be left blank or used to put a punctuation mark or symbol.

WLRN received more than 3,500 odes to ZIP codes. So many poets in South Florida. Who would’ve thunk? ‪

Presidential Inaugural poet Richard Blanco will select five winners from the project on April 29 (my birthday!) at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
