IRL AUTHOR Tommy Pico Read Æ 8 Ö IRL is a sweaty summertime poem composed like a long text message rooted in the epic tradition of AR Ammons ancient Kumeyaay Bird Songs and Beyoncé’s visual albums It follows Teebs a reservation born ueer NDN weirdo trying to figure out his impulsesdesireshistory in the midst of Brooklyn rooftops privacy in the ageD not getting laid IRL asks what happens to a modern ueer indigenous person a few generations after his ancestors were alienated from their language their religion and their history Teebs feels compelled towards “boys burgersbooze” though he begins to suspect there is perhaps a ancient goddess calling to him behind art behind music behind poetr. Chatty playful hot sticky visceral I love itAs I was reading this it really made me examine language and I admired how Pico played with language and how language played with him if that makes sense I really enjoy when poetry does that because it is so sparse sometimes as a medium that without that playfulness it can be repetitive or dry or turn people off poetry because it seems so academic IRL doesn't do that At first it felt a little like Instagram Tumblr Twitter poetry not that there's anything wrong with that but I thought I'd be irritated by his voice and then I heard his humour and his cheekiness and I had so much fun reading this Because of Pico's direct references to certain technologies like Grindr I'm curious to see how this book agesIf you've studied poetry at school and were just totally sick of it this is the anecdote Pico is soft pastel pink rebellion self deprecating humour hiding generations of pain asserting himself and then uestioning himself He is not the hero to his own story and yet that makes him heroic in my heart He tore himself down to build himself back up and I wish I could see him live listen to the words he crafts I'll leave this as a 4 star review for now but if it stays on my mind I might increase the star ratingHe is Puck and all of this is a dream and Brooklyn NYC is his playground

Reads like scrolling a feed complete with clickbait Pico can use a line break like a hairpin turn suggesting something and then snapping it into a new context when the new line starts IRL is nervous and alive in a way that makes me want to be both of those things
