Is stretching my ass'' - Santayana
Yes, there's a book out called Hialeah Haikus and it's mad popular too. Hialeah Haikus is written by a group of Miami artists, writers and actors in their 20s and 30s calling themselves "Foryoucansee."
Laura Isensee of the Miami Herald writes about the book saying "Seventeen syllables at a time, the writers try to celebrate the Miami culture they know and grew up with. That's not the slick image of South Beach from television, but the Cuban-American culture that pulses in the suburbs of Kendall, at the spring formal at Belen Jesuit prep school or in the agua, fango y factoria of Hialeah (a less-than-flattering reference to the city's water, mud and factories). Here's the link to the full story: Young artists celebrate Miami in ‘Hialeah Haikus'
I don't know about you but this is a book I have to check out. There aren't too many out there that truly celebrate real life and pop culture in Miami.
