Misunderstandings Magazine

I was not sure what to expect when I saw Misunderstandings Magazine: the cover reminded me of art school-which can be both good and bad. It didn’t look like an actual magazine to me; it looked more like a chapbook, and I questioned its label, its format, and its very appearance on my desk. When I opened the book, however, a strange phenomenon happened.

I sat back in my chair, sweater wrapped tight around me, and relaxed to enjoy the zine. I had forgotten how much I love poetry. I had started to become a bitter old fool who had forgotten her art school roots, and I expected to be bored. To thumb my nose at what turned out to be delightful: a little gem of pure, literary bliss, thanks to talented writers such as Amy-Lynn Birch:

you made me full/so tasty and fresh in my eyes/sickly full

Chicken soup, for the bitter old goth-punk soul. (Andrée Lachapelle)
