Hi Hat Outro


Hi Hat Outro
by Katieann Vogelian

Done with intravenous learning,
Done with books by rote,
This body learns leaning forward
On a boat.

Real life tastes like
fruit trees blooming.
Real life sounds like
guitar strings strummed.
Real life begins
at the end
of one’s rope,

cut it.

come come come on
the earth hums boldly,
come come come out
the wind blows strong,

it’s been awhile since
I enjoyed myself

thanks for nothing, ya bastards
I’m blowing town like
I blew all my money

on the high seas
sailing free
you can’t catch me

with a smile this wide
I am my own tide

ride ride ride
ride ride ride
ride ride ride
