The Attic-Rana Kelly/2nd star to the Left, straight on ’til morning

Rana Kelly!!

A Global Divergent Literary Collective

I give until I’m gone.

open my rib cage

scrape my heart

onto your plate

where it goes cold

and then I remain

an empty hope chest

in the dusty corners of


with kindling made of

broken rocking chairs

and cracked porcelain


Judy dress forms

Full of pins

And yellowed walls.

Weaved in among the


In a neighborhood

of condemned houses,

waiting to be burned.
