POP CULTURE Issue

 

The Poeming Pigeon: Pop Culture: From entertainment to fashion to techno-widgets, pop culture can mirror the beliefs and lifestyles of a society at any given time. Not only does the iconography of pop culture influence consumerism, the objects associated with it can also be a welcomed distraction from our oftentimes stressful world. We invite you to relax and enjoy these 72 poems through their wide lens of whimsy, nostalgia, and social commentary.
