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

Keep

Wonder how long I’ll keep going
how many unique things can I actually think of
in the last five years
three poems a week
every week
is it always different
if I don’t keep writing
keep reading
will I die?
Or will I just be like,
whoever else.

Identity so deeply bred
in
being a writer
and a reader
maybe I don’t have time for anything else.

I don’t know, or remember
anything else.
