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

In a new mother's smile

In an old mother's smile
On a holiday spent alone
On a yartzeit spent together

In a bucket drawn from an empty well
In a broken-down car by the side of the road

In a slow-motion, black-and-white
moving picture

In an old and empty casino
From a desert, a mountain, a sea
It rises like a mist

From the beach at sunset
From behind those eyes
From below the decks
And you can find it hiding

Between the lines
Between our hands
Between our hearts
Beyond our minds
