For this year’s O, Miami Poetry Festival, Reading Queer presented¬†“O, Hi There”, a free-form poetry reading that took the cruising experience as its point of departure.¬†We began by cruising local and national poets whose work we love and lust after by asking them to record one or two of their own poems, lyrical short stories and essays, or whatever other poetical forms they choose. Then, on Sunday, April 12th, we cruised the unsuspecting, this time setting our sights on the audience for “Poetry in the Park” at the New World Center. Throughout the evening, a team of RQ cruisers playfully propositioned audience members to listen to the recordings using headphones. You can now listen to the archive online below.
