Selected Poems II


Kat Copeland

Lover of words. Every voice counts. Everyone is famous. Some just have better press.

Tracy Sang

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Skies are Blue"
A regular fixture
at open mics. 
Her belongings sat
In the  corner
Of the coffee shop
West Texas in winter
Colorado when it's hot
In the alley, on the street
Is where she claimed home
Some days strangers 
Gave her enough 
For a motel room
A church built tents
She was so grateful
for a place to stay
Out of the wind
and rain
Some neighbors
The city tore them down
She was a cheerleader
In high school
She forever sings,
"And the dreams 
that you dared to,
why, oh why
can't I?"
