the winds howled all night

encircling us

candles gave the shadows 

life. we fed her some earth 4 foundation

power lines for voltage 2 highlight the eye

we made up

the queen of all tropical

storms  #katyamills

pink in the paws

summer turned to fall 

barefoot at the gas station

pink in the paw

taking fast food orders

with conjured elation

they found a twenty dollar bill 

in the road engine stalling 

spilled coffee all over the self 

good heavens so 

funny it sad so sad

it funny   #katyamills

case #xxo

the mockups kept you 

sharp what with the coming of the trial

you were so much more 

than a case so much more than just

a file  #katyamills

in lieu of they own kin they 

kicked off a world tour in lieu of pain

and suffering they called it 

distant relatives

story 23

in the real world

no one cares about your dreams 

but you

go to bed tired

the hardest days are the best days

give of yourself even more than

you knew you had

to give   #katyamills

Monday 23 August 2021

some say reckless

leaning into the winds 

they faced the storm with

some say reckless some say 

selfless abandon

by the gods 

they were allotted

the power to save

dream of dreams

there was a dream made of an element not yet on the table filling all the gaps in our memory all the holes in our souls with a warmth akin to sunshine. the visionaries had no words no words to see it settled the collective insecure bittersweet heart  #katyamills

the will of the people cannot always 

prevail. we see this in Hong Kong even in the States 

where capitalism fights democracy

to a draw

try living it
try being it

then may you honor its rightful place in the 

and yours

the cut

you wrote the cherished ones

describing life in the forest. all

they knew was the streets. the high rises

 cast deeper shadows in

the cut  #katyamills

kindness comes in countless forms
hate? a bitter tea

drift 25

was a late night rain
they lifted the e-brake
spun the wheel 
they drifted

dear god may i rise may i

fly from these illest confines

captured from below by your lens

an honest verse composing

flanked by puffy clouds and

friends dear god true

friends   #katyamills

les nuits

god i remember the nights we

came out with the moon

walking the streets full with love 

and venom 

they cannot do not will never

august lessons

day in and out 

we threw up figures 

on the dry erase board. arrows and clouds 

billowing with basic math 

the universe didn't make much sense

and that's okay cause

nothing does


Wednesday 11 August 2021

captions got feelings too

in the evenings 

we talked diagnostics

sucking on cayenne peppers

the scenery blurred

our emotions whirred

the captions unionized 

and walked off

the set

they dial into eternity by mobile phone 

8 years and more
substance free
they subsist on

the kettle boils
for coffee for

grown up again from seed they
are given and take 
the lead


Monday 9 August 2021


find a way 
into your own heart
then you may
know how to love

bird of vegas

the bird sung so well they gave her a stint in Vegas

a symphony orchestra a platinum 

bar dome the finest raw 

foods. weekends find her perched 

high in pecking order over raw chia pumpkin seed 

blends drinking oat milk throat coat 

tea couldn't spot her tail feathers

in a line up   #katyamills

8 days of rain

the great storm darkened the eastern sky

clouds curling like jet exhaust

folding under the weight of 8 days of rain

the world would teach us to be 

brave. we turned ourselves starboard 

we turned toward we turned

toward    #katyamills

the thoughts rumble and blend inside our pretty skulls...

the best part about not 
knowing is becoming a curious questioning
ever urgent tender phenomenon on
the old earth   #katyamills

Wednesday 4 August 2021

getting real

semiconsciously you recreate
painful incidents of the
past. like an obsession 
then one day you witness your life
it's like some sappy
forgotten big hollywood 
movie... and decide to get real

beneath a wave

the undertow

determined to drag us

down. we tumbled through kelp

and brine 

in the depths we found

the force 4 uplifting

triumphant she

carried us back from

the sea


Monday 2 August 2021

star one

star one
aglow after starlight receded

the others
having over spun
the star speed

star one
stayed true

made light
4 a little

from sun up to down they

hardly got time to reflect 

life was bad and good that way

got the heartbeat up some 

hiking they pitched camp equidistant

from being and doing and 

read a book. no matter how

deep the stories took them

life would be waiting
