O, Miami Spreads Poetry To The Most Unexpected Places (via CBS Miami)

April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, a local organization focused on literature is bringing poetry to South Florida.

“Everyone comes here, they know it. It’s the heart of the city,” said Christina Ramos, from Yo Amo 305.

It’s the cafecitos that keep hearts beating but instead of the porcelain cups you’re used to, this month when you grab your drink, you’ll read a poem or two thanks to “Hialeah Haikus” — poking fun at Miami’s unique vernacular using the traditional Japanese art form.
