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


Hepushes the gas pedal
to the floor
fuzzy dice dangling
from the crackedrear-view mirror.
The sticky smell of sweaty bodies
flushes away
asfresh air rolls in from the open windows.
Old leather seats
melt to theskin
the desert heat raining down.
"Going ToCalifornia"
blasts from the dilapitated radio.
Route 66 rolls underthe hole
in the floor board of the '76 Gremlin.
