My Garden

Regular price $15.00

My Garden is my first poetry zine! Cover pages contain photos I took, and each poem is accompanied by a polaroid picture also taken by me. In total, there are seven poems. All of them are connected by a shared theme of various emotional experiences and/or personal growth resulting from those experiences. Additionally, they are all in a somewhat different format, representing my personal views on poetry: the quality of the work should not be judged simply by being structurally the same. Either it is a sonnet or a stream-of-consciousness poem - they deserve to appear next to each other (if that's how the author sees it, of course). The name of this zine comes from my observation of how I "plant" something for my future all the time from my present thoughts, actions, and interactions with other people.
