On Friday night, in a tent beside No Name Bay, Tracy K. Smith read poems from her upcoming book, Life On Mars (due out in May), to a crowd sated on roasted pig. Held at Boater’s Grill in Key Biscayne’s Bill Baggs State Park, the placid pairing of pork and poetry was part of the popular Eating Our Words series, started in Los Angeles by poet Gabrielle Calvocoressi and gallery owner Heather Taylor, who were both in town for the start of O, Miami.
