Colors of Jerusalem This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Unknown
Friday ...
Muslimheads kiss the blue tiles
Of the holy mosque,
And shoot their hearts
To Mecca.
Saturday ...
Another Sabbath call
For whitepurity
Easily weaves into
Air and time.
Sunday ...
Chants of theTrinity
Drone and lull from priests' lips,
And swirling incense
Breathes from a golden orb.
Then Monday, Monday ...
Maniac Monday...
Another worshipper
Falls ...
Red.
