You know you're reading the words of a master surrealist when you understand exactly what they're talking about, even when you have no idea what they're talking about. Ricky Garni is such a writer, weaving truly bizarre images and sentence structures in such a way that they become totally recognizable, whatever the hell they are. His poems are passionate and enthusiastic, and will hold your interest long after you finish reading them.
Ricky Garni is a graphic designer and bicycle collector living in Carrboro, North Carolina, with his two sons, Linus and Dashiell. His work has been published in Pif, The Quarterly, No Exit, The Poetry Project, Big Bridge, Stirring, Swagazine, Oyster Boy and other venues. His most recent work is The Eternal Journals of Crispy Flotilla, a work in progress with appropriated images. "appropriated" is the polite term for it. He welcomes any questions or (polite) requests at firstname.lastname@example.org.
