A Familiar Change This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Your words come in start and stop formation
Around my ears and I
Can bringmyself to
Tears knowing that you
Won't touch my arm or
Smile
I'mfeeling small but I can't hide
Behind the coat rack because
I've grown pastfour feet and five inches and
You won't say coherent sentences but
Youspeak enough words to
Make me sit still
