The Big Weird: Haikus in Times of Pandemic and Chaos is a new collection of haiku poetry by Z.J. Czupor. Inspired by the stress and fear of the COVID-19 pandemic, Czupor's wry observations and short, hot poetry captures how our world quickly went from what we thought was usual to the weird.
Anyone who has lived through this time, estranged, lost a loved one, lost their job, forced to find a new way to work and get through the day, and watched as our world erupted in peaceful and violent protests, will appreciate how this weird year has forever changed our lives.
Czupor's poetry is calming, funny, sublime, serious, and will cause you to think deeply about what's important. Reading while drinking your favorite libation is highly recommended.
