Charred thumbnails,

scorched eyelashes,

an anesthetized heart,

and a brain coated with

a thick layer of

balloon static.



You can find this poem in an upcoming poetry compilation titled The Final Toast, set to publish on September 9, 2019 on Amazon in both e-book Kindle format and paperback! I am very excited to share this piece of art with the world, as I am traditionally quite shy about exposing my creativity to others. It is likely that not all of my poetry will make sense to everyone, but either way, I hope that it comes to serve, intrigue, or invoke some sort of emotion in anyone who happens upon it. I invite my readers to interpret my words in the way that most fully and appropriately serves them, regardless of the origins of my literary compositions. Ultimately, I write for myself simply out of enjoyment and expression, but if my words affect the reader of said words in some way, I would be overjoyed to have had an influence.

About the author

Kelsey Paulina

Strange. Unique. Rationally nonsensical.

One day, I would love to be able to quit my job and pursue writing, drawing, and other creative avenues full-time.

Creating and engaging with my imagination is what I was made to do.
