Name: Vinnie Kinsella
Location: Portland, OR
Blogs: I have my own site, Vinnie Kinsella Publishing Services, but it’s really my business site. I’m more inclined to direct people to Four and Twenty, but that’s not a showcase for my writing. I’m in the process of creating a site for my creative writing, but it’s still in the works.
How do you know Cara? We met through Four and Twenty, but we bump into each other elsewhere on the internet.
How long have you been writing poetry? I’ve been writing poetry since I was a child. I’ve been writing poetry I like sharing with others since I was in college.
What kind of poetry do you write? I write mostly short form poetry, such as haiku and poems in the Four and Twenty format.
Please share a poem:
1. An untitled haiku I wrote during NaHaiWriMo 2012.
three days in the coin-op —
2. “Blind Girl” (from “Poems in Transit,” a collection of poems I’m writing about taking the bus).
Her dogged companion
ignores her unsightly
haircut. The rest of us
3. An untitled haiku I wrote that won the “Awesome Sauce” award at High Coup Journal.
Two lines, one corner:
You and I converge.
