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.
