Five-Year Plan Mylo Reyes Poetry

local_library Five-Year Plan

by Mylo Reyes

Published in Issue No. 217 ~ June, 2015

There is something to be said

about growing up with

the up-to-no-goods.


The girl I fogged

stick-shift windows with



I am a nine-to-five

who stopped playing tag,

tubing down lazy river of hops,

trading au revoirs

against the all-American

white picket fence.


Vinyl roars


Swiss pearwood,

the maloik wrist.


We are just fucking up.


But, my grandmother,

on the few holidays I see her,

still plays solitaire.
