Riley welch is a poet from texas living in Denver. She posts three original poems a week. 


where I left my keys
what the hot sun feels like
the end of my hair hitting the backs of my elbows
kicking so hard I turn my toes red
my stretched out phone case
from all the coffee punch cards
a basketball
the dirty rubber shoes I wore in 5th grade
her curly ringlets
everyone being so tall
everything being so new
all of it.
