the annex / by Kelli Reilly

subtext

cortex

won’t tell you about my complex


falsehoods

alls good

smile like you always should 


incubate

don’t appropriate 

no negotiating with fate


milestones

done alone

you made a house not a home 


context

clue me in

gotta change from within


without the power

to see oneself 

some may never experience true wealth
