Poetry from Miami reflects the diversity of the city itself. We don’t just mean writers’ nations of origin, ethnicity, and subculture. There is no single style one could identify as a Miami school of poetry. There are no factions either. One dip of the stick into the poetic wetlands and up comes narrative drama, fragmentation, spoken word, formalism, and more. Such factions and schools are foolish anyway. Miami is an organic case in point.
