POETIC JUSTICE: INTERVIEW WITH LEXI VRANICK
YA INDULGENCES (04/18)
In celebration of National Poetry Month, Lexi sat down with Amber of YA Indulgences to talk about what poetry means to her. “For me, poetry is the way I understand. It’s the way I process emotions. Putting words to my feelings, no matter how dark or confused they might be, and turning them into art helps me understand myself and the world around me. It has also, over the years as I’ve gotten more and more comfortable sharing pieces that more personal and intimate, given me a way to communicate.”
Lexi’s poem “White Knuckles and Broken Cars” was published in the second issue of Cagibi, an online literary journal based in New York City. “white knuckle rush hour grips when the sunset should be beautiful but all I can think about is the rubber-burn and tire screech of car crashes; of smoke and police sirens and the creep, crawl slow of traffic.”
