From the New York Times’ blogs

Terrance Hayes reading at Cornell University

“Hayes, who The New York Times dressed for the Men’s Issue, reads this poem Cocktails with Orpheus from his National Book Award-winning collection, Lighthead, at the Mattress Factory Museum in Pittsburgh. Seen here in an elegantly photographed video by Pierce Jackson, Hayes sits surrounded by scorched boxes, reading to us about fire and liquid, light and ash.”
