july 28

heavy metals hung off her

neck oiled and glistening up

against the market forces

she set her sights high above church steeples

lightning rods and monarch

crowns. the world would honor

you by letting you live awhile

so long as you gave her

your all

423am

run on 4 hours sleep

ice cream for breakfast wash

it down with house coffee they

dont paint a great face they wont

talk too much smack they aint 

buttoned up in the finest fabrics 

they just work hard a long day

ahead and they mean it 

sincerely   #katyamills

noreaster

over the blast of the nor’easter

he yelled give er a little gas!

the panting dog of a truck 

fired up she clawed the wheel

he pushed with all of his might

defrosting in the booth 

of a diner a half hour later

they laughed and laughed 

and laughed   #katyamills
