Vinyl Poetry Rules YES YES YES

2 Dec

Yesterday, I realized I needed a haircut, so my also-named-Tyler pal cut it for me.

Today, I remembered how cool Vinyl Poetry is.

The new issue has cool stuff by fun word people like Bob Hicok, Nate Pritts, and Nick Ripatrazone.

But Vinyl also brings the boo-yeah with people I’ve never read before.

Like the work of Prathna Lor. These short prose poems rule in the way complicated things hide themselves in simple shapes, like a boom boom change of heart hidden in a haircut.

Check out what I mean in this excerpt from “Mannerisms:”

Every so often, I arrive at a locus where I am unable to politely hold a ball of air. And it is during these moments in which I think of you, you, and you—though, perhaps, not in that order.

Also, the Grocery List thing is as wild as grocery lists get.

Heck, this whole journal is interesting, so get interested and interests and interesting.

“When you read, have fun.” – my first grade teacher.

    I love the haircut and I’m glad Vinyl has the new issue up. Looking forward to reading it.

      I haven’t seen the haircut, but if it’s as good as Vinyl’s stuff it must be pretty stupendous!
