Embezzling should be abolished, but not until the next day – by Leona Boomsma

I heard all about her, but I’m too wide-eyed

to acknowledge all that is wrong. She embezzles

money like I hide my deepest feelings. She’s certainly 

no angel; for me a creature from above. The soft moonlight

makes her look more and more heavenly as minutes go by. 

Although I know this will be over the following day, never

have I thought of something like seize the day as bad advice.

Leona Boomsma (she/her) is a proud emo-instapoet from The Netherlands. Her poetry can be found (or is forthcoming) in publications by Beyond the Veil Press, Sapphic WritersPaddler Press, Gutslut Press, Lavender Lime and Dollar Store Mag.
