Story


I woke in an aquarium full of cold brew coffee.

I've been writing ever since.

Hi. I'm Ben Niespodziany. Or neonpajamas.

I curate albums. I release books and zines.

I freelance for various labels.

I write poems late at night.

I work full-time at a library in Chicago.

I'm also an uncle and a returned Peace Corps volunteer (Ecuador 2011-2013).

Welcome to the inside of my head.

Here you will find funhouse mirrors and oddball musings. A poem or ten. You will find interviews with creatives, reviews about picture books, and a pocketful of fireworks. Maybe even a zine and a radio show if you search properly. Step inside. It's free. I promise it'll all be okay. For now.

How to Navigate Your Hot Air Balloon

Below are links that'll take you to rather expected ends

of the [neonpajamas] mind maze,

but pull the right book, tilt the proper candlestick,

and you might find a secret entrance.

Shout-out THEMpeople

[blog]

The most up-to-date, active part of my website, where I highlight visual artists, exotic animals, music videos from 2003, instrumental EPs, and books galore. This is not a Chicago blog, just a blog with a bunch of Chicago. This page pairs well with a medium roast.

Writing

An extensive list of my two chapbooks, my two magazines, my handful of poetry publications, and my various flash fiction pieces. This list that will continue to grow, assuming that I make an effort to update the page.
