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

By
I watch my mother scoop
the pork mixture with
nimble chopsticks
And wrap the wontons
in sheets of dough
Into the hot oil they go

I try, but my chopsticks
aren’t so nimble
And the wontons don’t
look so neatly wrapped
in my clumsy
sheets of dough

The kitchen is filled with
such quiet memories
of making wontons
and egg-drop soup
and moon cakes
All wrapped in awkward
sheets of dough
