run on empathy

drained they was

runnin on empathy alone

clothes tattered

eyes red thoughts 

burned black elbows

an knees nicked 

tummy grumbles throat

gurgles breath wheeze

please don't leave 

me we got all 

night don't we?

in the long hours waitin

years later got our wish

all our days together twenty

four seven we 

could have killed each

other we almost

did  #katyamills

four times she spoke 4 times

he did not listen. a hawk 

fought for balance over the 

banks of the river. it was gonna

be a great fall

self together when one 

has fallen momentarily

apart? how fantastic 

to solve oneself like so

for you

This seems really familiar. It seems to be like the book Maze I read. It was good. I liked it a lot. Would definitely recommend.

eyelashes bold 

made up real fierce we

rolled out with our knapsacks

they found intimacy 

in fighting in yelling being

pinned against a wall

deep beneath the ice they 

was yearning

venmo fugitives

here was okay 

but nothin like nowhere

rummaging through shops 

4 clothes @ war with capitalism

they constructed

bleedin us for pennies

you will not need a platform
a purpose a cell phone you
do not need money or friends 
or water or food you just 
need to pray around
the clock give thanks
and speak truth

i was yours
the cars spinning down the streets
collision with the air 
i was yours and
i was yours until 
being a hood ornament 
became a fuckin
drag   #katyamills

lesser brighter days

the fall after the summer

not unlike immolation 4 the cause

was marked by fiery reds

yellow and orange in

the ones who survived

any verse

out on the stones

a friday eve with any verse

tremulous voice

tied back sleeves lips 

pursed. all the world let

down her locks 

in the arms of her bonny

hailed by two string guitars 

evocative. we touched our scars we 

looked to the stars what 

when you hit shore? we prayed

we prayed 

into the grid you tore and 

the children swore god

damn they 

swore   #katyamills

they was wanted 

on any road traveled

east and south and west and north

an unsparing desire 

in some bar 

on any street corner

sleeves rolled up

for a fix
