We are in a zoo packed full of thoughts and feelings and deep, dark things struggling to surface.

Zoo is a surreal exploration of mental health with exhibitions filled with nagging creatures. Their interactions with each other are commonly problematic.

This short work is an intimate and introspective read. Even more intense than the usual process of writing, I suspect taking a survey through his own mind was therapeutic for the author.

It’s very different from what I usually read, but I would say my only complaint is that it may get a bit repetitive. I should warn you must be in the right mindset for it.

All of us have dealt with our fair share of these beasts. This novelette is a reminder that every head is a zoo and to be kinder to each other. Oh, and don’t forget to take care of yours first.
