JENNIFER WALLER transliterated into English

To the Unlikely Stories home pageThe Waller in question, close to your screenOdious 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 lazaruslady@hotmail.com, or visit her new web page, Bad White Trash Memories.

Jennifer's work appears in In Our Own Words, an anthology of Generation-X poetry from MWE. Check it out at the Unlikely Stories bookstore.
