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

   bustlingstreets, filled with black cabs
and bright red buses,
heads popping overthe open top like budding roses.
ceaseless movement, a steady rush from onecorner to the next
to the next, the stairs to below a riot of moving colorcoats.
the tube is filled with steady voices and moving bodies,
on and offwhen the doors rush open, on then off
and up the stairs to the surface, to thestreets
with their people rushing by their city on their way to theirjobs,
their lives, moving mindlessly past their culture,
a mesh of statuesand art and instruments of torture,
a legacy of greatness forgotten by theancestors of the greats
in their quest to become great themselves.
