Truck May 2015: Three Poems by Stephanie Galloway


On days like this we drip out of every window still
Looking for a way out of the boxes we live in

We did not begin from a place that had walls

Open ended

Open started
No clothing lines upon our frames

It is all fluid
Even the cement

That holds us in place

In a solid state

Of wonder


Up sea daisies
Dipped feet
And mermaid tails
Give us something to hold on to
While we are drowning


I picked the floor off my chin
And continued to be in a state of uttered belief
There are days where I feel I have lost moments
But then they come back to me
And put leeches on my sadness
Where it meets with the ground
Once more
Restarting a space
I can explore
With my toes
To the air
