Stray String This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   hanging, dangling.

a nervous finger

rips, tears, pulls

daring the string to resist.

gaining, the finger;

growing, the string;

fabric tightening

unraveling

at the finger's mercy.

the fabric pleads;

its cry,

a gentle rip

the finger ignores;

winding, winding

turning pink -

red in

anticipation.

the rips are louder

stronger

more.

the finger,

no longer nude

shameless in its theft.
