Fresh Off the Runway by Kelly Moyer

This season’s babies
are made of mohair
and should be treated
with care to avoid
shrinkage and/or
premature detonation
unless, of course,
you are seeking
a distressed aesthetic,
which may pair
quite nicely with
a trendy pleather pant.


Kelly Moyer is an award-winning poet and fiber artist, who pursues her muse through the cobbled streets of New Orleans’s French Quarter. When not writing or weaving, she is likely to be found wandering the mountains of North Carolina, where she resides with her partner and two philosopher kittens, Simone and Jean-Paul. Hushpuppy, her collection of short-form poetry, was recently released by Nun Prophet Press.
