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


I drove down Colorado, over New Mexico,
and into the top of Texas.
And back.
In 12 short hours.
I rested my hands on my soft stomach
and let the glasses shield my eyes
waved at every cow
saw the pink-lit mountains at sunrise
I missed a lot of things,
and was content with much.
I spent most of my time tired,
but tried to also see it as fulfilled.
