This zine is a collection of four poems that are really stories (or stories that are really poems). As a story lover who’s never really connected with the world of poetry, I must admit that I had some trouble with it. The pieces don’t have the hook or plot structure that traditional short fiction has, so they left me asking: “what was that about?” A poetry lover, however, might get more out of it than I did.
If you like narrative poetry, give this one a try. (Anne Emberline)
