Ripe for the Asking This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


I was standing on the corner of Indecision and Abnormal yesterday,
waitingtentatively for the light to change,
when a stranger came up to me andasked,
in the most polite voice,
"Please, may I put your heart in ablender?"
How could I refuse?
After all, he was grammatically correct...
He did say "please"
After a small, dramatic pause, I quietlyand calmly handed it over
The man smiled, said "grazie," and walkedaway holding my heart-shaped heart
[LIGHT CHANGES]
Somewhere on Illusion, Ifelt a small longing for my missing organ
I salvaged a coin from theroad
Turned it in the light
Stamped, in small print, were the words ..."profound insight"
The longing quickly passed.
