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

By
     Cotton candy sticks
To fingertips and young lips
Pink spun perfection

As the rain comes down
The bubble gum colored floss
Turns gooey orange

The once-white paper pillar
That held the mighty treat
Has collapsed

She cries in dismay
Not comprehending replacement
Disappointment in hand

Mother to the rescue
Another sugary castle
Is within grasp

Two dollars is nothing
To inspire that smile
Brought on by the king of confections
