724

i don't wear diamonds or flashy things. will shine off anyone who sparkles with kindness. and what about remorse? when you say the word very slowly it will give you its essence like being patient with a flower by the rising sun.

 you cannot get some things back, no, they are gone forever ... yet you can bring the memory of belonging to life if you meditate on it ... let the deep imprint wash over you until it again becomes tangible and real

broken phone liberation party



the phone crashed to the ground and broke

all the lost feelings
began to surface


there was a sudden freedom 
that followed the sudden despair

all the lost feelings
they began to 
feel

muddling 1



when you muddle the facts
looking out your fearful lens
my animus comes with animosity
and wants to slap the sense
into you. but you are me and
it would be silly to slap myself so
I pull you close and we open
a book instead

thought balloon #4



thought balloon forming
in and out of consciousness
glimmers opaque without feeling
any more 4 this world

@Katya444ever

little good comes out of being rushed like words expedited to publication. twitter was what it was. an echo chamber run by a billionaire who long ago lost touch with a commoner. a first draft machine. and a social diversion with like minded heartfelts.

it did not seem a dangerous word
forever
when it left the throat
puckering the lips @ the R
in the prime of love


after the fall
she tried to move on and
he made it so

on a flagging memory day



no longer
could he recognize her
she held his hand
for a while and the felt
sense remembered
on a flagging memory day
this boon. touch
cementing their bond
against the dreadful
fear

a.tone



she looked up with pleading eyes
a lock on her voice
stop this nonsense. he said
atone is all she heard
the tears like Mumbai rains
washed away her fear
steel in a world of plastic
i was there. but I didn't do it
they are my friends!

pulse



they
fogged up the glass
in the back


electrical short
wheels spinning
her pulse went
slack

quint.essence



the quintessence
of the initial draft
a chaos of emotions
boiled down over a thousand
cups of blue bottle coffee
matched by morning
suns

July 7 (#vss365)

you won't see us desperate for company or terrified of being alone with our thoughts. #introvert we can kick it with the ones we love and care about but if there's too many around for too long we may get a little tired and need to cash out.  #katyamills

July 6

i leaned on the wall

it's close to 100 degrees

breathless in the hall 

fell on my knees

i love that we 

gonna live here 

together

but how can we rest

on a couch 

standing up

facing west?

they bequeathed us
a cashless society
our paper
the faces of founders
could now be burned
within the law
to stay warm

July 3

 worn from traveling we

encircled your kitchen table
where we used to say grace
some of us silent unable to
stop the tears
stirring our coffee with silver
embossed with your owls
may the gods embox
my heart. inhume it
so i can rise to this moment
and help you to rest
