TAPE DECK: MICRO POETRY BY STEPHANIE KNARR

 

Tape Deck
the light in the corner
of your room
beside the slanted painting
bulb nearly burnt-out
your issue with insomnia
sobriety
brain damage
boredom
the tape deck
of the boombox
that rests so gently
upon the coffee table
among the wreckage of
pill bottles
and notebooks
and thoughts you never finished
the tape deck doesn’t work
it’ll warp whatever you want to hear

 


Stephanie Knarr is a queer/transfemme writer who recently moved (last October) to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from the Harrisburg area. She tries to maintain a blog, called “Just Another Bitch in the City,” but finds it tough sometimes to keep up. She just enjoys living, and writing is something she does to keep sane and motivated. Her favorite drink is Coca-Cola and her favorite band is probably Animal Collective.
