The Beatnik:
An Ode to Liz

by Sara Kennedy

Mysterious Poet looking chic in black
writing furiously on her bit of paper

Scribbling out beauty
Scribbling out metaphors

Coffee turning cold with intensity.
Pauses, drinks, thoughtful mind wanders to the sky
searching the teasure bank of words.

Reaches back and pulls her hair into a sloppy ponytail
with a focus frightening.
Blue undereyes from nights of emotion.

Reading, studying, expanding, growing,
all lost in words.
