Angels Don't Have Wings This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Sometimes angels don't have wings.
Instead, they wear
black leather
     studdedcollars
          and dogchains.
Sometimes angels don't have halos.
Instead, they have
greenhair
     pierced eyebrows
          and bellybuttonrings.
There are no
flowing whiterobes
     auras ofgoodness
          orfantasticmiracles.
Only
gunshots
     politicians
          andblood on the walls.
Angels don't havewings.
Just
     a little bit ofkindness
          everyday
               isall it takes
to make an angel.
