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


I've always had strong superstition
Thinking of the things that happened
As always based in a circle
Of giving and taking
And when good things would happen
I would worry it was an accident
And would be taken away
And so
I would keep my best behavior
Until it couldn't be taken away
Like any trip I go on
I fear falling ill
And will drink water
Until I'm bursting to the brim
Subtle worry
Is just more background noise at this point
