The reBOOT issue of Joey is coming along and I wanted to share one of the poems that will be in the issue, from an old poetry friend of mine, Kelly Farris. Enjoy!

In My Haste

These flash-bulbs
of happiness
leaving spots
in my eyes
render me blind
for moments
and days

soon they fade
to the ugly light of terminals
too many miles
and shit cities
each one
a little further
from your smile
and motion

You wanted happy
so I left it there
in your room
on your pillow
wrapped in your arms
watching you sleep
