film noir star

rain licking the drainpipes 
teasing the window glass
like a young lass
film noir star 
throwing shade ona honeymoon killing spree  
in nineteen fifty-three

February

memories of you 

swim through

the time has run

it's all gone white and black

of the thousand colors 

in this palette

fifty two are shades 

of blue

double fun

he had a day off and took us bowling. none of us were any good which made for great silliness. in my mind it was always a birthday if we went bowling because we didn't usually go unless it was. so having him there was a doubly. #katyamills

tahoe. north shore


at the waters edge 
snowball burns the palm of my hand 
for you. a bird in your bright coat 
winged lashes 

a blue memory hits me 
like the lake between 
the eyes

your last day in the sun 

we played in the yard

then god took you and god

it was hard

life of ADHD

the morning ruined with rushing

body heat battling the cold you walk to the train 

blood in your face 

blushing


misanthropic for a moment

guessing you will be admonished 

by your superiors


yet when the clock strikes

you are there victorious

out of breath. no worse 

for the wear

making it

You must you must you must and I will I will I will I cannot any longer hold back  and who am I who? Oh this is the way they talk when making love. [Sibling puts on noise cancelers on other side of the wall].      #katyamills
