Self Portrait

by Kelly Stacy

Artist: Marcos Guinoza

I woke up this morning & was over Kelly Glen Stacy,
burdened with his dry
skin & squirming thoughts,
so I threw on a light jacket
& the air was as fresh as it was gonna get 
& I walked a few miles for a sandwich & lemonade
cause sometimes even I know
if I just get real
high all day long
& really drink beers
all day long, I’ll awake
to the coffee table covered
in ashes & toppled bottles
& see a mirror.


Kelly Glen Stacy is a poet living in Brooklyn with their partner, Ashley. They graduated from Ball State University.
