Studded Leather Paradise This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Slip between the cracks
Enfold yourself within the nooks
Like so many grains of dirt: your neighbors.
Bask in the shadow of the combat boots
And marvel at the piercings;
displaced holes in their hearts.
Tattoos - markers,
helping them find their way back.
Frolic in the smoke, and join the pulsing throng.
Shrill melodies echo in your ears.
Your first spiked bracelet;
Welcome to the club. Called
Downward Spiral
A less glamorous way to fall,
sans polos and palm pilots
