the despair

the junky begs alms

under the palms 

washed out i once lived 

the despair

a little rhythm

a little sunshine

went a long way

you don't need 2 beg

2 get what you

black friday

on black friday 

they found themselves discounted

hanging off the racks

another wild animal 

in line for an exchange

saved by the kindness

of a furlined coat

world turned green

the dry old world turned green after days of heavy rain

they unlocked a little love stepped out of one desolate world

into another passing notes in secret

down the halls he leaned in she looked his way 

chasin day into night and night

into day   #katyamills

ode to banana

i punctuated my morning with 
a cheerful lemony comma
a receiver that cannot receive
a vessel 4 electrolytes 
demanding my attention 
symbol for art and inspiration
i got under its skin and it got under mine
forcing my pen automatically in
repetition of consonant
and vowel

feeling dys at formal function 

sad kinda suicidal ina river of thought

chasm wonderin what the fuck?

compositions on acid like dead show 

parking lots. organized isms

blue blockin the asms

give it all away save the copper

attitude like a useless penny for 

a rainy day  #katyamills

starbound days

the one i hoped against hope to love in the starbound days took apart the sum of my words and selected from them a single choice, out of context, and left me, dissolute, with the remainder. i burned through nights, furiously attending my reduction. i did not rest until it was done. out in the street one dawn, shutting the door quietly behind, i carried the hearty broth to the needy.  #katyamills

no wonder good things live underground for once they see light so often they are trampled
