Barista Favorite: Summer Rain/Kristiana Reed

We had a tie for Barista favorite for February 19th’s Promote Yourself Monday at Go Dog Go Cafe. It is our honor to publish this piece from Kristiana Reed of MY SCREAMING TWENTIES

My palm blossoms forth,

fingers stretching toward the sun

reaching for the empty space

beside me, reaching out for you;


reaching out for your copper warmth

skin wrapped in twilight

in a cold Winter’s night kiss,

your eyes a molten blue.


I curl inward, around cotton memory

aching for your return,

idyllic Summer rain

helping me forget all this pain.
