About OptoClo

OPTOCLO is a blog revolving around poetry about life and the cyclical nature of our stories. Everything has a beginning just as everything has an end – and then it all begins again, opening at the close.

The Rubble Before Us is a collection of poetry by Brandon Vinton about having to wade through the rubble of relationships not meant to be, picking up the pieces, and figuring out who you are afterwards – all while dealing with the depression, existential crises, and the struggle to love and be loved afterwards that comes with it. The final copy of the book will soon be available to purchase, and all of the poetry within it can be found on this website.
