The Clash - Mary Kloster

I follow my heart more than my mind

Often to my own misfortune.

Should I stay or should I go?

I always stay, my heart

Taking the driver’s seat.

My mind, has long since

Become accustomed to losing.

Fleeting gestures,

Consume to madness,

Every thought torn in two.

Why does the heart rule

What the mind knows can’t be true?

Every thought torn in two.


Mary Kloster is a graduate of the University of Oregon, majoring in English and minoring in creative writing.
