oonavent: Poets House & Omnidawn NYC

The oonaverse converged last night at Poets House to attend a reading & celebration for the always imPressive Omnidawn.  Some of our favorite poets shared 6-minute micro-readings, calling the soirée a family reunion of sorts.  We were honored to be the paparazzi in attendance!
