Gas Station Maps

Katie Matesic


Between the pages
Split of words
Fountain pen ramblings and milk stains
split from old souls.

Red tinged neurotic
fishing for hearts.

"She's stable, doctor"
But the earth moves
Doldrums and gulf streams
chart her mind.


Katie Matesic is a sixteen-year-old Canadian who attends Lester B. Pearson High School. She splits her time between writing and creating art. She has previously placed in local poetry competitions.
