Omitted #1: Muses & Bruises

by Miss Omitted

Omitted is a raw and angsty perzine from Philly/New York City. Our anonymous author scribbles her thoughts out in these very tiny notebooks, and photocopies them, omitting portions, but keeping many of her thoughts intact. Her anonymity allows her to be brutally honest and speak her mind, even if it means examining her motivations with a finetooth comb. Themes in Omitted include trying to find oneself, departing a loved but painful city, romance (or lack thereof), and dealing with being queer. Our author wonders if sleeping with people to feel validated is the same as a violation, or if relationships with boys may just not be in her cards. She ruminates on why the people we date always reappear in our lives, or how sometimes sleeping on the couch may make us a little less lonely. Omitted is as honest as a zine with no author can possibly be.
