POE Poetry

Zines that mainly consist of poetry.

Quarantine

Quarantine is a 40+ page zine that contains creative non-fiction, poetry, and semi-fiction I wrote throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a photo series I created with my companion Peter while in quarantine. In these pieces, I draw upon humour, the surreal, and hope as coping strategies for an especially challenging and strange time. I use my work to step outside of myself, imagine a better future, and be playful as a way to get through the shutdowns, the lockdowns, and the quarantines.

He Said, She said, and a Dog Barked: A Collection of (Drunk) Poetry

"The poems in this zine are from a really shitty, dark time in my life. Most of them deal with depression, alcoholism, self-destruction and drug addiction. I was hesitant whether or not I should share these poems with people because of their overwhelming pesimism, However It's been hard for me to move onto new projects while leaving this unfinished. So here it is. The drunken ramblings of a scared little kid. Try not to take this too seriously I guess. It's who I was, not who I am."
