Labor Day by Alyssa Trivett

Labor Day
Thoughts flick neurons
and goldenrod colored mirages
prance on shadows from windows.
Time only floats,
ascends up creaky stairs
during this quiet morning
taking up the air.

Alyssa Trivett is a wandering soul from the Midwest. When not working two jobs, she listens to music and scrawls lines on the back of gas station receipts. Her work has recently appeared on, at In Between Hangovers, Punch Drunk Press, and Carcinogenic Poetry. She has fifteen poems in an anthology entitled Ambrosia, a collaboration with eight other poets, soon to be released by OWS Ink, LLC. All proceeds from the anthology will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
