National Poetry Month: KittyKittie reads Mohawks and Coffee

 
“KITTYKITTIE”                
 

 

Mohawks and Coffee


Comic book humor, pen and ink, Strathmore paper at 140 pounds.

 

Bleeding are the lines, naked is the paper, no china here.

 

Donuts and vegans, the two are at odds, like you and me.

 

Sweet and addictive, if I don’t think about it, it doesn’t matter or exist.

 

Mohawks and coffee.

 

It’s just you and me.

 

KittyKittie is a woman of color and cancer survivor: "The work I have submitted is a body of work that expresses my musing of my illness, mortality, survival and much needed sense of humour. There is a side of cancer that no one wants to talk about and that is the impact it has on a person’s life, state of mind thus effecting the rate of recovery and or survival. I hope through my work someone somewhere will find comfort in my words and find the strength to carry on, no matter what is going in their lives."

 

The Winnipeg Free Press will be running poems by Manitoba poets every weekday in April to celebrate National Poetry Month. The NPM in the WFP Project was edited by Ariel Gordon.
