Sour Grapes This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Ramblingaimlessly along the California countryside
are the mangled masses ofgrapevines.
The fruity Chardonnay will make
white wine lovers' taste budstingle;
while the black-currant Sauvignon
will make the taste buds of redwine lovers woozy.

The Red Flame, Thompson seedless and Concordgrapes
become raisins as they are not sugary enough
to be made into wine.Unlike the person
who doesn't make the team,
they accept their fate anddon't complain.
Like shriveled grapes, feelings get devoured.
