Meet the author:
Hi, I’m Lauren. I’m a 22 year old Bostonian writer, poet, photographer, pianist, and belly dancer. I just graduated with my MA in English with a BA in English and Creative Writing from Brandeis University. Creating art is who I am, not what I do. I like to see the beauty in things that people pass by.

Last night I went to my 5th twenty one pilots concert in less than a year. They added one of my favorite songs to their set, an older one from a few years ago. Experiencing the song in person reinforced my admiration for the story behind the lyrics and the brilliance of the musicality. It’s a track I’ve listened to at least a thousand times and I never expected to hear it live. Long story short, it made choosing tonight’s poem simple, since Saturdays are conveniently my ‘twenty one pilots titled poetry‘ days. I present to you, my version of “The Pantaloon:”As always, check out the twenty one pilots version too!
My name is Matthew J. Hall and I don’t have a degree nor own any cats. I am not studying creative writing and I am not the editor of any literary mags. I have worked in many factories and warehouses assembling, packing and picking everything from shoes to pornographic magazines. I am an avid reader and writer of poetry and short fiction. I aim to one day live a quiet life by a body of water with my wife, drinking whiskey, eating cheese and writing.
