Lift Off on Maple Street This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
The house on Maple Street
With only the attic light left on
A force is lifting it right off its feet
The smoke and flame cover the lawn
Possibly commotion in the attic
Could this be the cockpit for the house that has lifted?
The explosion and ruckus, for sure very traumatic
The small fir tree is blowing, and everything has shifted
This small house is no longer the same
As it floats high above the rest
Out of the basement shoots a huge flame
What has happened? Is this house insane?
