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

By
   Tilted at an angle

so its insides run slow

Down a tube to soothe the spirit

it settles and begins to grow



Over time it starts to peak

splitting reality from what isn't real

Slurred, happy, and lost

the bottle starts to steal



No memories after the fact

just another night in the past

Another bottle tilted otnight

more to make the spirit last
