UNTITLED | Sollette Doucet

 

I could paper this city with charts of my mood

Throw emotions out the window onto passersby like ticker tape

I could listen to advice and follow it

I could take this pill and swallow it

Abstain from coffee, and eat all my food

I could be the picture of a good girl

But that wouldn't make it real

It wouldn't cure me having to feel

 

Sollette Doucet is a writer and artist and super-mom from Lake Charles, LA. When she's not doing those things, she's annoying her husband and three children, or making inappropriate jokes about her mental health.
