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


Whenever given a chore,
or task.
I picture it.
Lay it out before me: Here is what will be done.
Even if given a hard choice,
the correct one
can always be pictured.
Gleaming, a little brighter than the alternatives.
I always know what I will choose next.

The first time I could not
picture my future.
At least a little bit,
was my drivers test.
The April I was 16.
But I did take it,
and I passed it.
I drove that car,
and then,
after that.
My whole future blurred.
Things became less and less clear.

And nothing has been so absolute since.
