mermaids > poetry pirates

I am asked to participate in "Poetry Pirates", an O, Miami event that is part of National Poetry Month. A pirate navy led by artists Antonia Wright and Ruben Millares was strategically placed at critical junctures of the Miami river, and as boats pass through the lyrical zone, they were assaulted with lines and stanzas from a Walt Whitman poem about the sea. I participated by creating a floating island of sirens. Featuring Marissa Alma Nick, Noelle Richardson, Christina Frigo, Lauren Shapiro and Vyvian Alejandro Figueredo (oh yes, there was a merman).
