SHE CHRONICLES: “bang bang” a poem by Nikki Skies for “Rebel Yell”

2017-04-25-22-13-31

“Got me  / living life like a suicide note found
every morning at 7a.m.
bang! bang!
can’t remember anything else but staying steady,
ready / like mother’s equipping
their children with breakfast bars   backpacks    and  dash cams

bang! bang! bang! bang!” – by Nikki Skies for “Rebel Yell”

I hope you have been able to watch this season of “Rebel”!  As I shared a few months ago, I am the writer of the poetry for the show.  The lead actress parlays as a poet and I write her metaphors, analogies, similies and such 🙂

I also write for the online series updates, “Rebel Yell”.  Here is the first poem recited by the lead actress portrayed by the amazingly talented, Danielle Mone Truitt.  Enjoy,
