Irritated subway riders can now turn their frustration into poetry.

"Vent Your Inspiration" asks riders to compose poems about what they want to improve about the subway system and what they appreciate about the MTA.

Contestants are asked to submit poems of up to 30 lines in a category of their choice, such as air quality, train conditions or positive feedback.

The winning works will be sent to the MTA and Governor's office with a request for an action plan.

The person with the best poem will get a 30-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard donated by the Straphangers Campaign.

For more information, go to www.ventyourinspiration.org.

Contestants have until November 20 to send in their work.
