Delicious Like The Moment This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Warm summer dusk -

breezy, happy;

almost dark

can't quite see through

air that's blue-green

like seaweed.

people chatter -

laughter,

loud, happy.



Lounging on gray concrete stairs:

rough, happy

cement

underneath my legs,

the scenery is

smiling.



I hear crunching -

a blonde girl's

diet chocolate bar

(in my opinion,

a diet chocolate bar is an

aberration of

nature,

and was never meant

to be.)

However, the girl is

satisfied

and licks melted

chocolate off her hand,

content, happy.



Warm, moist smell of

pizza -

I have a slice:

steam,

melted cheese

oozes between my

fingers -

greasy

happy

delicious -



like the moment.
