A Single Poetic This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
She speaks so fluently
In paper-bag words
Stanzas leak from her lips
As water from a paper cup
Her history lies in a wide array
Of unspoken truths and inks;
On grocery bags,
On napkins,
On envelopes,
Right hands
She tends to speak
In fathomless beauty;
A single foot willing
To sink deep into
Puddles of reality and
Precociousness,
Each day dressed
In stunning poetry -
People stop and stare
People stop and stare

I like the repitition at the end, it really closes the piece. I also really enjoyed the "paper-bag words," because it can have so many meanings. Definitly a favorite of mine :)
