Hat Genius #2

Hat Genius #2
digest, 20 pages, $2
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I have a love-hate relationship with poetry. I love the idea of it (and some of it I really love) but most of it I can't seem to like - partly because so much of it is unlikeable and partly because I don't understand most of it. However, Laura-Marie's poetry has always been a different story for me. For some reason I "get" it and I immediately enjoy it. It speaks to me somehow, and I forget that I'm reading poetry - I forget about my love-hate relationship with poetry, and I just enjoy the words I'm reading. This zine is a perfect example of that. It's filled with poetry by Laura-Marie detailing her "lost marriage, a lost friendship, a dying cat." Also there are some six-word poems that she's experimenting with. These poems are loaded with emotion, and you will feel it, so be prepared. But don't let that intimidate you. Just get this zine.
