Gravity This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


The earth is not mine.
It does not revolve aroundme,
I revolve around it.

It calls my body
pulling, relentlessly
every heartbeat, a struggle

I stand
defiantly
upright

but it never lets up
not for a moment
determined to pull dustspecks
down into its gaping mouth,
a hunger that is neversatisfied

man can never be triumphant
don't you dare hold your head uphigh
it makes for bad art.
