Odious and vulgar with the weight of bad sex, Jennifer Waller's poetry is concerned with the power struggles and emotional turmoil lurking behind modern romance. Jennifer's work is written in a world where there may be a light at the end of the tunnel, but you can probably damage your retinas if you look at it for very long.
Once upon a time, when brutally forced to write a bio, Jennifer wrote: "I was raised in the South, with Southern traditions and religions. These things are still very much a part of me even though I don't really belive in them anymore. This is really hard. I keep wanting to go off on all the philosophical/psychological tangents. I'll try to stick to the facts. I live in the metro Atlanta area and I go to Georgia State Univeristy where I'm a film major. I really dig film, but I'm beginning to realize that it's not a very practical career choice and I'm thinking of switcing my major to computer science, but I really hate calculus. I hate it a lot. I've written all my life. Written about everything that's ever happened to me and all it's ever really amounted to is notebooks full of painful reminders. Okay, I guess that's me, if I do indeed exist. I mean, of course there's more, but I think that is like all that needs to be said about this." More recently, Jennifer has been sick, totalled her car, and taken home a boy from New Zealand she met on the internet. You go, and all that. Her E-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit her new web page, Bad White Trash Memories.
