Liminality by Hallie Fogarty


The world feels alive at four

am, when I see a shooting star

on the way to pick you up from

the emergency room. All the lights

are on and it shines like a summer

camp. Where nighttime sprinklers

feel like a secret and the rustle

of keys is a little too loud.

The backsplash of the blinker

on the exit sign is a reminder,

who do we keep the lights on for?

Hallie Fogarty (she/they) is a lesbian poet and visual artist currently creating and studying in Northern Kentucky. Her work deals with themes of lesbian identity, queer relationships, mental illness, and introspection. When not creating, she can be found reading or spending time with her three dogs.
