Global Warming & Other Bullshit by Katrina Willrich

once,
all we had was the frenzy of butterflies
under suns curved dive into
casually indifferent water,
to which we offered
pier splintered feet.
fine dining went to the mosquitos,
love-warmed blood.
while peanut butter jelly on
regular white sealed our sticky kiss.
once,
we connected continents
the purr and pain of deep
blues turned red in air
we sang along to the pleasure
writhing out the cure.
soaring on the hearts of poets
from root
through texas snow in april.
and yet still,
I know how you look without leaves.
and now,
you wont even say hi.

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤
