Two Boys Sleeping In The Guest Room This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Twin boys

on a hot summer night.

with their shirtless skinny bodies.

tumble to the mattress

after jumping on the bed for hours

and fall asleep,

but not in their own room.



They sleep to the sound of the crickets chirping,

and the smell of fresh clean air.



The draped curtains and floral print

can't be a kid's room,

even with the mobile of airplanes over their beds.



But, their similar shoes in different colors

placed so carefully next to the bed are

just waiting for the boys

to wake

in the morning.
