Have you noticed some form of poetry in rather odd places throughout Miami-Dade County lately? You may be one of the more than two million Miami-Dade residents that are being delivered a poem throughout the month during the O, Miami Poetry Festival. Now in its fifth year, the festival consists of a number of events and various projects and the ultimate goal is to ensure that each resident is exposed to a piece of poetry, including prose, haikus, limericks, and more. This will be achieved by posting poetry in a number of different and peculiar places including rooftops, coffee cups, under water, and many more unusual places.
Some of the notable projects that are happening or will be happening this month include the “Poet Roller”, a large wood roller designed to etch the words “Mañana? Always Mañana”, (“Tomorrow? Always Tomorrow” across the sands of Miami Beach over and over. The words are part of a poem written by late Miami poet Donald Justice.
