New York poet Frank O’Hara invented his movement Personism as a way to interpose the poem between the poet and the reader, as a way for the poem to connect people. Boston-area poet Heather Christie has added a new chapter to Personism by establishing hours, July 1-14, during which people can call her on the phone to have her read one of the poems from her new collection The Trees The Trees.
